    Needing some tires for my f250 diesel. Have 10 ply tires on truck now. Had a set of bf goodrich all terrain 8 ply tires given to me. Will they work for my truck and for extra weight of snow plow and salt?

    As long as the weight rating matches the door sticker, or your actual weight, you are OK.

    Sizing makes a difference as well. 8 ply 285s will hold more than 10 ply 245s
