    not sure if this is the right section to post this but anyway, i have a 97 chevy 2500 single cab and im in the market for new tires definatly going to need some before the snow flies. currently i am running cooper discoverer a/t size lt 255/85/16. these tires arnt bad and actually went really well in the snow but unfortunatly i only have about 30k on them and one of them is already at the wear bars i was wondering what you guys would recomend from your personal experiences. i need something that can handle alot of weight because i sell firewood and also something decent on the high way because i travel on the weekends. lastly i go in the woods alot to get firewood so it would be nice to have a tire thats decent in dirt and mud. just wondering what you guys would recomend thanks in advance !

    Coopers poop out to fast. I have two sets of rims for my plow truck. Winter and the other seasons. Coopers in the winter and Michelin's for other seasons

    I really didn't like my bfg all terrains. Wore out too fast and only had goof traction when they were new. I had good luck with my kumho road venture KL61's. If you can't get winter and summer separate tires I would go with what I mentioned above or dick cepekfun country's or duratracs. Those are both excellent tires and I have 45k on my current cepeks
