    Would strongly recommend against any type of mud terrain tire. They may not look the best but tall skinny tires in an all terrain tread would be much better.

    I had a set of 9x34x16 superswampers on my Ramcharger for a year or so. They were ok in the snow, but I would recommend a tall skinny all terrain tire also. I also had some 35x15.50x16 radials on the same truck and the radials were much better even though they were much wider.

    a mud terrain tire is no good for snow. look at a firestone steeltex e- load. tall and skinny works the best. smaller footprint= more traction.

    I have been running a set of Interco Super swamper TRUXUS tires for 3 seasons. They are a great plowing tire, best I have used. 235/85/16 10 ply.

    I agree 100% on the tall and skinny.. but with only 5k on my new truck, im ready to turn my steeltex into a small tire fire.. Living with a gravel driveway off a dirt road off a dirt road (ok you get the idea) I have found that they are no good when the snow hits..

    have only used mine on pavement and snow. rotated every 8k they went 40k for me. had a goodyear workhorse on my dodge i think they offer that in an
    e-load. that saw more gravel and also worked for me, good price also. hoping for snow!! :cool:

    tirerack.com has a rating system for tires in all different catagories like snow, mud, wet, cornering, wear, road noise, ect. Helpful in choosing tires.
