    Put these on the truck last week. They are Pro Comp 6001 16x8. I had the tire shop just put my 285 Coopers on these wheels and I'll find something to put on my stock wheels for winter time.

    We had 50 inches this year. Way up from previous years. Every weekend in December we were out including New Years Eve, New Years Day. January was quiet til the end while we ere out pushing on Super Bowl Sunday. Feb had several as well.

    Looks good Will.

    Not to steer you away from the ATRs but my girlfriends father got a set put on 2 season ago worked great in the snow.....but this past winter they were worthless. Ive never seen a tire wear out so fast with only 7k miles on them. all 4 wore out terrible. just putting this out there. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the info. I dont need a thread pattern like the other Coopers. I am not going off road, or trying to climb a mountain or anything like that. Boss what do you have on your truck? I am also going to go up one size to a 265. Thanks in advance. Rich

    ive got Dunlop radial rover R/Ts. couldnt be happier. had them on for 6 months now with about 4K on them and they still have the little rubber nipples on the treads! no joke. i do about 60% road driving 40% off road. and in the snow ive never used a better tire. except for the steep hill drives i plow, i never put the truck in 4wheel all winter. i could plow 90% of everything in 2wheel with these tires. i give them 4 thumbs up! LOL
    Out of 10 points, they have more than a 9 for snow and a 8.5 for treadwear

    Those wheels and tires really add a lot to the look of that truck. I love the looks of those chevy's and this is coming from a ford guy:)
