    Just curious if you guys plow with something this aggressive.

    That's 'Old School' aggressive. Might be OK in jagged stone, but definitely not a snow/ice tire. Too much rubber, not enough edges to get the traction you need on slick stuff.

    Ya, they are real old school. We use BFG Mud Terrains on all 3 of our plow trucks. They work excellent and are about as aggressive as you can get and still be daily drivable.

    I tried Interco Super Swappers one year, in deep snow they were great, in ice of wet weather they sucked.

    Those things look like they are as hard as hockey pucks. A buddy had 38.5" boggers on his truck (not a plowtruck) he had them sipped and worked awsome those things are super soft.

    I had a set of 38.5 boggers too....hated them. They're good for a truck that never sees the road, or any speed above 30mph. The did work good in the muck though.

    Ha we have those tires on our old Zam at the rink up here! The BFG Mud Terrains are good but there dont have to many plies. I use Dean Tire SXT-MT they are a 10 ply load range E tire good for heavy truck/ sander. Siped and studded they are glued to the roads. Wintercat tires off the shelf hands down for plow truck.

    to tell you the truth, those tires bite good. i have a old dodge plow truck and they grip the snow/ice excellent.
    the rest of my trucks run powerking RVT tires(6'' wide, thats what you want) and thats what everyone else here runs now. I hardly use 4x4 with them now.
    I can post a pic of them if anyone wants, just pm me.
