    they cant make them fast enough . i got mine and they were still warm :laughing:

    make sure they have the E weight rated stamped on them for trucks. some people dont know it , but you get less tread and plys with out an E rating . they make them for cars and suvs also .

    C

    50 psi (350 kPa)***


    D

    65 psi (450 kPa)***


    E

    So far the best snow tires I have ever used are the Contenental Extreme winter contact (triple tread) and most tests have rated them #1 as well Thumbs Up

    I've always preferred a mud tire for plowing. I've run Super Swampers, Buckshot Radial Mudders, and currently run Fierce Attitude on my 98 Chevy and Goodyear MT/R (old style) on my 95 Chevy.

    To the OP- I know two guys that swear by the new Goodyear Duratrac.

    I'll buy another set of dura tracs when mine wear out. I should be able to get close to 50,000 miles out of them.

    Check tread depot and discount tire direct. The last time I ordered tires, those two were the cheapest when shipping was added in.

    Snow tires work great in the snow. Otherwise I suggest round tubeless pneumatic tyres.

    I have ran Cooper Discover M/S's for 4 yrs now and loved them except the price which was around $1k for each truck. This yr i got a smoken deal on General Altimax Artic's and so far i must say they have been a great tire, just as good if not better than the Coopers. Cost me $1300 for both trucks All of these are 265/16's E-rated.

    I had Cooper M/S for a while, worked good but wore out way too fast. This year I`m trying Bridgestone REVO Duelers

    Not sure of the conditions you plow in or roads traveled but dedicated mud tires are not really suited for snow. I'm glad they work for you but a novice could get in some bad situations running the dedicated mud tires you mentioned in the winter. The biggest difference being the small "sipes" which look like razor slits in the lugs that really help on snow and ice. now I know some people will "sipe" a mud tire to help in the snow and ice but a dedicated mud tire is usually bad in snow and ice. There are combination tires like the Cooper M&S which do well in both conditions because its a slight compromise between the two conditions. Not trying to disrespect you or anything just trying to help newer people understand.
