    I am in need of new tires for my plow pick ups. Could someone point me towards the best tire out there. I need a tire that will be good the other 9 months of the year while were cutting grass and will still be good to plow in the winter and not rob me of fuel in the summer. Help please!

    Well R&R runs treadrights and hs no problems for the most part.I personaly run COOPER Dicovery on my 250 and have had no problem at all just like all truck tires you need to keep rotating them about evey 4-6 months depending on the miles you put on them
  8. 4-6 months would put me at 25000 miles
    I rotate every month and use balance beads, no wheights on my rims.

    I'm running recaps that are the similar design to Bf Goodrich TA KO. I have run these for years and average 20k miles out of them, i have also ran the Courser MSR which in my opinion is an awesome snow tire but they wear fast in the summer months. I f i was to run new tires and wanted all year long wear i would go with the Goodyear Duratracs.

    Anyone run Nokian tires? Looking at the Rotiva AT's. They are more popular in Canada.

    Had BFgoodrich AT's. Didn't like how they wore. I went with Yoko Geolanders. I'm satisfied with their performance year round.
