    hey everyone. i was just wondering what y'all used for tires on your trucks in the winter for plowing. i have a set of BFG M/T's on my truck right now. will those be ok for plowing? or should i look for a good A/T?

    Bridgestone Revo two's, I just priced em out at 265 75 16 ten ply for my F-250 801 out the door. Excellent in the snow.

    i heard the A/T's wear unevenly and end up cupping...so far im liking the m/t's but i gotta shape my lower fender a bit to to a clearance issue, until i can get a leveling kit for the front even though i already brought it up 2 inches. gonna go up another 2 inches in the front and 3 in the back.

    Cooper snow tires on the GM and Toyo snows on the Ram. I'm sure mudders are good in snow but not on ice

    No don't use mud terrains, unless you don't want to get around in the snow. Get the bfg AT

    i was mainly asking if mt's would be ok. i got a set of brand new ones for free from a neighbor. but still with being unemployed ican still ask questions and get answers. i got the answer i was looking for.

    this is so very tempting. but i only need about 1.5 inches because with the plow the front drops about 3/4 inch and the tires are rubbing a tad bit right now at full turn. so i think 1.5 inches should be perfect.

    What if they don't work at all? Does that mean you can't plow?
