    Need new tires. Still use my truck for personal use and not interested in bajaing. Plow only resedentials. Been looking at Cooper ATR's and Goodyear Silent Armors as replacements for Bridgestone Muravis oems. Other question, my plow setup is 2 months old and seems to dim lights when operating. Oem battery still in truck that is 3 yrs. old and 600 cca. Would upgrading to a 1000 cca help this? Volt meter drops to 9/10 volts when using plow but quickly recovers to normal. Truck is plow prepped and has 145 amp alt. Opinions on both issues welcomed. Thanks.

    have you looked at bfg allterain ko lots on here say thay love them. and few bucks less and just as good thay say general grabber at2.

    and yes full electric plows need big battery or batterys. that stocker 600cca is basicly just right for starting the truck let alone plowing with it.

    I like my grabbers. No wear at 7 k miles and they are priced really reasonable.

    Talk about saving a few bucks. They have a smooth quite ride and wear is unbelievable so far. I have had no problems with them in snow for 2 or 3 seasons. Dayton Timberline A/T. Do the research and then decide I did.

    Really Simple. Get the Cooper ATR's and with the money you save upgrade your battery and add heavier cables. Don't forget the one from the alternator to the battery.
