    I know I'm bringing up a MUCH talked about issue..F450 and F550 studded snows.

    I have read through old posts and seen some options, the boys around here run Nokian caps with studs but even after time and balancing the shake/shudder never goes away completely. Although I do not want to spend the $3000 on Michelins XDS2, it seems they are the best snow without studs.

    I want to know if someone has studded snows, what brand and their performance.

    Did you change to the 245's as the stock size 225 seems to be a bit more limited.

    We do either run the truck with a loaded sander or 2500# concrete waste block for ballast.

    Love my Fords, hate the tire issues.....
