    Like i've said im changing tires soon and i was browsing through bridge stone tires and I thought that the Bridgestone Duravis M700HD tires ar pretty beefed up too i've also seen them on the newer Silverado 2500hd's. These are also All Terrains :nod:

    i tried a lot of diff brands in the past thats why i have stuck with the bfg's for the past 6 years. they do very well plowing and seem to last longer than the others i have tried. would like to find something a bit cheaper that would perform and last. but maybe with tires you get what u pay for.

    For snow plowing I suggest that you only use tires with the mountain - snowflake symbol molded into the tire sidewall. These tires will give you the winter performance you are looking for. The Goodyear Duratrac is mountain - snowflake rated and 18/32 of tread depth (very deep). I admit that I don't know much about the BS tire. I put a link below to a Tire Rack page that show the symbol, in case you're not familiar with it.

    Good luck.

    A guy I work with just put the Duratracs on his 2500. He said it was all over the road so he checked the pressure and it was at 32 psi. He put more air in, I think he went to 36 or so, and it is fine now. I really think that will be my next tire.

    Thats wicked low tire pressure for a 2500. Add another 14psi.

    I agree guys! I wonder how long they will last as well. It probably won't be until next spring, but I'll bite the bullet and give them a try. Maybe by then there will be some updated reviews with some milage on them.

    Like I sometimes tell guys who rag on newbies here---they might be new here but that doesn't mean squat,they just might know more or have more access of things than you.Case in point right here.Good bathroom read.;) and welcome.
