    Buy some pmetric tires for a passenger car!!!!
    Just kidding. THere are many opinions on tires here. Find some you like, and try them. I prefer my goodyear, or cooper, but that is JMO

    I just put 4 BFG All-Terrain on mine. In my humble opinion they are the best for traction. I had them on a Dodge several years ago, with the stock tires I couldn't move in snow without 4x4. Put on the BFG's and didn't need 4x4 to get around anymore.

    This Question agian

    I don't no but maybe do a search and make your choice but this has been covered so many times choose the best one that fit your budget as you will see you'll get a hundred different brans here and everybody seems to say that what they have are the best. But they are all wrong MINE ARE!!!!!!!!!! :D

    I have been pretty happy with the Cooper Discoverer ATR tires. Good tread wear, and good traction in the snow last winter.

    It all depends on what you're looking for. Do you want a designated snow/winter tire, or do you want a tire that does well in snow, but is okay to run all year round without destroying the treads?

    Never tried the mud terrains. As I said though the all-terrains are great and wear like iron.

    Seems that THE TIRE for plowing in snow/ice is Cooper Discoverer M+S.

    Whatever :D all he has to do is pick any brand that fits his budget, get a good set of all terrains keep the tire pressure up ballast, proper alignment and rotate at the proper times he should be fine.

    best i found so far is sears on bridgestore dueler

    http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/prod...O&subcat=Light+Truck+&+SUV&BV_UseBVCookie=Yes


    285/75r/16 $144.99 a pop and after mount balance new valves road hazard package and alingment total is $843.68


    50k tire tread wear rating or get it cheaper picked up or shipped to the door then do the run around for mounting balancing and alignment to save about $60-$80 and get no warranty or hazard from anywhere


    but best rating i see is on the BFG T/A

    i've had BFG All Terrains on mt past three trucks and have always been more then impressedwith them, the only downside is they are a softer rubber so they tend to wear a little quicker

    Bridgestone DUELER APT III - 285/75QR16 LT rating on tire rack says they wear quick



    BFG ratings say they better wear and traction all around
