    I recently got some new tires, 285-70-17's Hankook Dynapro At's I can honestly say they are the best tire I have ever had as far as snow traction, with my 8' Fisher hanging off the front and no weight in the body it is awesome, I can spin the tires if I try but going easy its great, I had Cooper Atr's before and those work good too but not nearly as good as these Hankooks, even after the nightmare Town Faire Tire put us through with them I still would buy another set and reccomend them to anyone for plowing.

    I loved mine, but never got to run them in the snow before I sold the truck the other day. I put about 20k miles and they didn't hardly look worn... MUCH better than the GY Wrangler Silent Armors.

    Had some on my Tundra but also sold it without too many miles on them. Ordering a set for my Tacoma next week and those should get a true test. I was impressed while I had them on the Tundra.

    Those Hankook AT's are by far my favorite all around truck tire. I let a brand new set of 285's go on a truck I sold and still kick myself for it. The LT's in an "E" ride so great you'd never know they were a heavy duty truck tire.

    I found the downside to this tire. White letters only on the size I need. That would be a pain to rotate on the dually,

    I had ATm's for two years & 55k miles. First winter they were excellent, much better than the oem Bridgestones. Second winter with 30k miles they were NFG. This year I put on Hercules Terra Trac AT's and they've been amazing so far. Plowed 18" no problem and pulled 11k trailer in 12" unplowed roads. I'll see how long these last and decide which I like better.

    Exactly why I buy new tires every year just before plowing season.

    JustinD - I like the tread pattern - semi agressive - very nice selection

    :)
