    Do a search. Literally hundreds of threads about tires of every iteration. Been beaten to death.

    Duratracs are good for plowing, but they're not the best for daily driving; tend to be a little slick. I've got the Duratracs on my plow truck, but am switching back to Cooper Discoverer M&S on my daily driver truck, which is also my backup plow truck.

    Very happy with my DynaPro ATM's. Quite on dry, great traction on wet, snow and ice. Spend most my time plowing in 2wd with 600# of ballast. A lot here like the Duratrac's from what I have read. I can just get a better deal on the Hankooks.

    I really like my Hankook Dynapro ATm's Good wear, great in the snow. BFG's are ok if you want to replace them yearly.

    I run GY Dura Tracs on both of my trucks, great tire, a little to aggressive for daily driving for most folks, don't get more than about 32-35K out of them.

    Use to run BFG AT's on several different trucks, at the time they were probably the best options around but there are equal tires for less out there now. The last set I had was in '08, I only got 20k out of them and rotated every 5k. I never got more than 35k out of them.
    I know a couple of guys that run Cooper Discover ATR's
    http://www.discounttire.com/cooperAtpHtp.html
    One of them have about 25k on them on a Tundra and they appear they'll last well over 50K. Good price point and I'll probably run these in the summer.

    My Dad runs Good Year Wrangler Dura Tracs on his Tundra and I also had them on my Chevy and we both love them. My new Tundra has BF GOODRICH A/T TKO's and I love them so far. I'm really looking foward to seeing how well they work for plowing.

    Regardless of the tire manufacture, you should be rotating your tires every 6K miles per most maintance guide lines. I rotate my BFGs every oil change (about 5k miles) and they still look like new.

    To the OP, if you want to save a couple bucks and like the BFG tread style, check out the "Treadwright" website and take a close look at the "Warden". A buddy of mine just purchased a set for his truck for about half of what a new BFG cost

    Cooper AT3's for me. Best rated tire for 3 years in a row.

    I'm on the second set of Goodyear Duratracs and they do great in the snow, although they are on year round. Mileage is around 30k-35k at most. Also used the general grabber as well and they are not to bad. Tires used on Chevy 2500hd crew cab and k2500 extended cab. Make sure and rotate.

    I have been running Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos for the last few years on my GMC 2500. They are great in the snow and all around driving. Never been stuck and could plow smaller storms in 2WD. My only issue with them was that I tow a 6,000 lb trailer for my day job and the weight on the rear end seemed to wear down the tires quicker than I would like.

    I just bought a set of Hankook Dynapro ATMs. I'm hoping they're just as good in the snow and handle the weight of my trailer a little better. I do swap my tires in the summer, but pulling the trailer a few days a week during the winter has been tough on tires.
