    if they are for the snow and snow only go with the 235s. i just bought some 235/75r/16 for my truck they are cooper disoverers and they are an awesome tire cant wait to try them in the snow.

    It is nice to see you are so excited about your 810.

    But could you please tone it down a bit. Your post's are creating a problem . Can't keep up with demand,.

    PSDF350,
    What size tires do you run the rest of the year. We don't get that many deep snows here, 6" or less at a time. I just run my usual tires 305/70/16. They seem to work pretty well. :waving:

    well, i had some crappy 235's on it, on it wheni bought it. just found some rims because the offset on the ones which were on it werent right, the rims i have now are 15 by 8......how bad wuold the 31's be in snow compared to 235's? i just like the look a little nicer. i'm kinda stuck with sam's club tires because of the cheap prices here for them. they have AT's....MT's i believe as well. i dont know.....

    Boast right now i have what came on it 265/75r/16 (which stink in the snow) but in the spring i plan on putting bigger off road tires on. the snows i bought are 235/85r/16. here we get 120"-180" some storms can be 3' so thats the reason i bought dedicated snows. if you live were theres not much snow run anything becuase it wont matter.

    Check out Sams Club web site. They have a lot of tires that are available at your store even if they don't stock them...Chuck

    i went to sams today, i think it was 477 for 4 31 10.50 15's, BFGoodrich AT's.........i went for the "look" instead of snow prowess i guess.
    i ended up taking them and mounting them at my buddies shop, they wanted me to pay for the tires and such before they even mounted them on my truck .....why does that sound like BS to me?? i guess i'm getting a lil crazy at the tender age of 35 eh?

    interesting, where did you get yours from? i was pricing around here and sams seemed the cheapest?

    BTW, tried them out a touch, grips way better than the old junk,,,,what ever comparison that is?
