    Anything with sipping is going to better in wet icy conditions than the BFG's. But as far as any cheep tire it may not be quiet, wear well or balance out true. I find you get what you pay for.

    Add a signature so we van see what truck your running. If it's a half ton or 3/4 I will make a difference in load range. 3/4 you'll may want to be looking at a E rated tire.

    Hey, Just added a photo so we could see what kind of tread pattern it had.

    looks like a nice tire, but what do i know?

    I too have plowed with BFG's. Actually last year was my first year without them and I missed them. I used my brand new stock tires and they were terible and they are the upgraded M&S form Bridgestone. I had them Sipped and they were better but not even close to the studded Nokian tires that I have on my car.

    I love my studded Nokian Hakka LT with studs:salute: .

    Have 4 on my '01 Chevy and 6 payup on my '97 wrecker.

    Is it safe to assume you are replacing BFG Mud Terrains and not All Terrains? Don't think you'll beat the performance of the AT's with these tires, but they're probably better in the snow than the MT's....

    A friend of mine runs those in the winter and loves them.

    I think the BFG AT's were my personal favorite, I run Cooper Discoverer's now, and I like them for snow, but suck when icy. They were pricy $170 a tire.

    Good Luck

    I had bfg all terrains on my 94 GMC 2500 and they were awesome. I never got stuck and never even got tire spin with a buttload of snow in front of the blade. I am for sure getting them on my 00 Silverado. I had the 285/75/16 size, similar to a 33" tire.

    I had the 285's on my 94 GMC 2500 and I just turned the torsion bar like 2-3 cranks and had no rub with the plow on. If you have timbrens on then there should be no prob.

    I had 285's on stock rims on a 90,94 and a 99 all half to GMC's with no torsion bar adjustments. just the under the bumper rubber/plastic air dam trimmed.

    On my 05 3/4 ton they are cranked 4 turns but not for the tires but for the rake forward that that I hated. the bumper is trimmed and the well well plastic is melted and bent back with a heat gun.
