    I just got a 2003 GMC 2500HD and am going to run a 8.2 BOSS V-Plow and was wondering which tires would be best for the weight. Thank you!

    Weight isn't the issue...Traction is.

    I like Cooper Discoverer M/S studded snow tires.

    Run @ least 500# ballast weight behind the rear axle and you'll be pushing good.

    I have the Bridgestone Duler A/T Revo's and love them. Just put on the second set this week. Good all around tire and i have the heavier duty ones, load range E and can run more weight than my truck can hold. Just personal preference but that's my choice.

    I just got a great deal on a set of these from Sears.


    The techies who run their website messed up and forgot to adjust the price from $154.99 to $184.99 when they ran the ad for buy 3 get 1 free promotion. So I got a set of 4 installed out the door for $563 today. The manager who had to honor the price contacted corporate right away and they've since changed the price to $184.99.

    These are one of the better rated tires for the price IMHO.

    Tried them out on wet pavement today and me likes em!

    A tall thin tire is best for plowing.

    hmm I thought I replied to this earlier, but I must of hit the back button instead of posting or something.

    anyways, I ordered 285/75/16's Dunlop Radial Rover AT's for mine and my brothers 2500hd's today. got em from discounttiredirect for $154 each and no tax and free shipping. We are mounting them at a friends shop so thats free too :D
