    Im thinking about replacing the tires on my HD. I have those dinky 245s and im looking at upgrading to either 265s or 285s any thoughts on what I should do? Also im stuck between the BFG All Terrain T/As and the new Goodyear Wrangler Dura Tracs any opinions here?

    I just had a set of 265 Duratracs put on my truck last week. So far I love them! Still waiting to see how they do in the snow obviously.

    I would go with the BFG's. I have the Goodyear wrangler silent armors on my truck and I hate these damn things. Cant even get one year out of them before needing replaced. And they get rotated every 6k on the dime and I get the alignment checked yearly. Good in the snow yes, but they wear out really fast. I only average about 23,000 a year on my truck. 18-19k miles these tires are pretty heavily worn and I didnt even get to smoke them off to make em this worn, lol. Goodyear will never receive another cent of my hard earned money that is for sure!!!!!

    Round tubeless pneumatic is the way to go.

    BFG ATs are good in the snow, but don't hold a candle to snow tires
