    I ran a search and I didn’t find too much on tire choice.

    I drive about 36K a year and would like a fairly quiet AT tire that performs well in the snow. During the summer I often make several 180-mile round trips to “work” each week, so I would need something that wears well. The BFG’s that came on my truck have worn evenly and are pretty quiet, but they suck in snow.

    What’s a good all around tire for snow and everyday use?

    Has anyone tried the new Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo?

    Check it out here:

    The reviews sound great, but not sure what you guys use for plowing.

    I looked into replacing my tires also, not sure on road noise the tire I will replace mine with are the Commercial TA by BF Goodrich.... the specs on them seem good....

    on a scale of 1 to 10 the lowest score is a 5 for handling, all others are 7 or above.... but do you really want your plow truck to handle on a dime like a corvette......

    just my .02 .... and IMHO

    I got the same tires Cat. Best deal around. I like the free tire rotation for life too. I don't find the road noise to be to bad with these tires, but they are on a truck with off road suspension so my opinion might not be the best gage to go by.

    Good Luck,

    B.F. Goodrich commercial T/A incredible bite in the snow. Make sure its the traction commercial t/a. The difference between these and the Firestone steeltechs that came on the truck is night and day.:drinkup:

    As mentioned before. I was anti cooper tires, after having a set of cooper cobras I could lite up to 4th gear in the mustang on dry ground w/o trying. Put on BFG comp T/As, and had traction.

    So, I was a BFG person, until I went from a BFG A/T, to a Cooper Discoverer A/T. All I have to say is wow. I love the cooper A/T, I do most of my plowing in 2 wheel drive now, and pull right up things I couldn't get up in 4 with the other ones.

    AS a cheap, good tires, with out much noise, and good wear, go with the coopers. All terrains of course.

    Interco Trxus M/T.......
    Very aggresive tread, siped, load range d and e, 3 ply sidewall with light tread, very reasonable road noise(slightly over stock) Wonder why it took Interco (aka Super Swamper) so long to get their hand in the A/T market. And look great, I love em:D

    Interco TRXUS

    I have set of Interco TRXUS . :drinkup:
    Tough and great traction all around. Figured they would give me best chance to get out, when slipping over the edge, since the side lugs can dig in. Haven't slipped over the edge yet with them though. These are great!

    Here is link, and they look even better in person! http://www.intercotire.com/html/trxus_mt_sts.htm :cool:

    Okay so today I went off the beaten path and put cooper discoverer mud and snows on my f-250 pickup "wow" nice tire and the traction is really good. Never thought I'd like em but they dont make the commercial t/a in the right size for that truck. So far I really like em.

    If you have a light truck I found general ameritrac suv tires work ok. Although I overload them a touch on my truck.

    I run the Cordovan Wild Spirit Radial DTX. Excellent snow traction and hold a load well but wear a bit quick. A bit noisy too.

    They're the last tire in this link.

    Sorry - Link didn't work quite right. They're under the radial light truck catergory of the index.

    I second what Joe 92GT says.I have the Cooper A/t's on both my Ram 2500 in 285/75R16,and on my wifes Blazer in 235/75r15. These tires are excellent all around tires that perfrom on road like a highway only tire,as fasr a noise,there is no noise.They perform great on the road,the ones on my Ram hook up way better than the BFG A/T's I had before. I could spin the BFG;s well into 3rd gear on dry,good blacktop with ease,these hook hard in hard in 2nd,up to about 450hp,at 500_+ they wont hook til in 3rd:D . These tires are excellent in the snow too. I Sled pulled last yr with both the (got 1st place) and the Ram 3rd place.Both did great.

    I have uniroyals on one truck and they had excellent traction at first but they wore out quickly and now they suck. My other truck has Good Year but havn't plowed with them yet, so far so good but they are brand new and came with the truck
