    welcome to plowsite
    Do a search on tires, it comes up once a week.
    just because a lot of people use a tire does NOT mean it's the best. After all McDonald's sells a lot of hamburgers, Is it the BEST hamburger?

    Do u feel that one tire seems to work better then the other or about the same?
    I know they have similar tread but I have read the generals performed better and lasted longer and they sure alot less expensive.

    i run pro comp at's on my truck and they work great. i have had firestone destination mt's and bridgestone duelers on my truck before. both tires were no where close to the pro comps. on my avalanche i have a set of stock 17'' rims that i put a set of dunlops at's on it. the price was right...free. we will see how they go in the snow.

    stomps the competition. Only the Pro Comp All Terrain
    has a 50,000 mile warranty and a Severe Weather rating.

    PliesDualguard™
    Polyester Body Plies consist of thick 2 ply polyester
    construction combined with a blend of dual side wall

    off-road without excessive heat build up.



    (3) Elliptical Siping Pattern
    Pro Comp’s Advantage - Deep siping runs throughout
    the tread and interlocking shoulder lugs provide extra
    biting edges for excellent all weather traction.
    Tread pattern also allows for superior gripping power
    in snow conditions allowing the Pro Comp All Terrain to
    have its Severe Weather Rating. Only the Pro Comp
    All Terrain has this feature.


    (4) Dual Radius Tread Arc
    Pro Comp’s Advantage - The dual radius tread arc
    increases the tread contact patch for greater traction,
    maximizing treadwear and smooth even wear throughout
    the tread life. 50,000 mile warranty.
    (5) 50 Degree Triple Center Lug Design

    I have been happy with the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors. They have a 50k Mileage Warranty, I use them year round, and they also have the Severe Snow & Ice Mountain Logo that Snow and Winter Tires receive.

    I plow mostly in 2wd, and they feel almost as good as Snow Tires IMO.

    It seems to me the best bang for the buck if you will be using this all year around. I always get the Load E Pro Grade because with the plow or towing, it does make a difference.

    Then again I only have a Dodge Dakota Quad Cab V8, so Its not a full size truck.
