    Whats up fellas. Hope everyone had a little fun in the white gold last week in the North East. I'm looming for some tires for my 2001 Ram 2500 for snow, and year round driving. Good for rain and hopefully helping gas mileage.. what you guys got in mind

    Not necessarily helping gas mileage, but I have been running Tread Wright Wardans for a while now: www.treadwright.com

    Aren't necessarily good on gas, but they are cheaper to purchase to make up for it.

    Gas mileage nut being my first priority, if it's a good tire than that's what I'm looking for. Even I'm not plowing, I'm hauling material and in New York, we tend toto get a lot of each season. I even consider buying a extra set of rims for snow tires and a good set off all terrain for the other 8 months of the year.. I'll look into these though. Never really heard much about them

    Some off the top of my head that myself and a few buddy's take a beating and hold up well in the mileage + snow department.

    Grab a second set of wheels and do it right. Get some summer rubber on new alloys. Get some Firestone Winterforce LTs on the OE rims.

    For an all season tire at a pretty good price the definity dakota at2 from pep boys works good. think original cooper discoverer. I like 'em. Make sure You get the lt's. I have them on 2 trucks in 285 75 16. I'm sure the bigger tires don't help with mileage!

    Less aggressive than most all terain tires yet plenty of traction for snow and mud.

    Bridgestone duller revo s are great snow and ice tires and have long life. I have Goodyear duratracs on a truck that are great too but probably not a long lived good mileage tire.

    Spot on! I have the Dura-Tracs and they're awesome.....but my truck isn't my DD. The Revos are an outstanding blend.

    My only advice is if you work on mostly level ground or small grades AT will be fine. If you have long steep drives then get aggressive winter tires on a dedicated set of wheels.

    This 100%
    Just go some winter force this year. They are like tank tracks in the snow.
    Awesome

    I've run the Goodyear Silent Armors in the past and they were a good snow tire. Now I'm running the new Toyo Open Country AT2. They have a more aggressive tread pattern than the original Toyo AT. Not too much snow up my way yet for a full on report but so far I think the silent armors were better in the snow.
