    Anyone use general altimax artics before for plowing? Looking at 265/75/16. I have used BFG's since i bought the truck but i have gone through 3 sets now and im only at 63,000 on my truck. Curious how they work when plowing

    Great question! I also will soon be looking for 17" plow tires for my new truck.I ran Bridgestone Blizzaks on my other P/U...great tires for plowing,but ya,very soft rubber and they wear fast!

    BTW...they are for sale...won't fit the new truck!

    I have the General tires on my truck, the work great, some of the best snow tires I have used. Get them off in the summer though, they are very soft.
