    Anyone ever use nokian tires? Or what about chains on their tires? I have good tires but they aren't snow tires my biddy said they might be summer tires but I don't know they have plenty of tread but I have 2 sets of rims with tires on them 16 inch and 15 inch the 15 inch ones have like 31 tires but they are weather and so I figure I will use those rims for winter rims and get some good tires for them. I have nokian wrg2 tires on my wife's all wheel drive car and they work better then any snow tires I have ever used on cars before and I know nokian makes some studded snow tires but I don't know if they are truck tires I know they have SUV tires but I don't know if there is a difference or what the difference is

    Firestone Winterforce / can be studded. I did not as it could leave marks on the fancy driveways.
    These tires rock - absolutely unreal compared to the Goodyear M&S tires I took off.

    You could fill your tires with plow fluid.

    Best truck, one that works.

    Plow, the one that moves the snow.

    Tires, round ones.

    I'm on my third season with a set of Pep Boys branded Dakota M/T's.
    Picked them up when they had the buy three get one free deal.
    They have worked very well. And they have a 50k mile treadwear warranty.

    Last year my son put on a set of BFG TA KO on his Colorado. Month after him I put a set on my Jeep TJ UL. Way better then the Jeeps original GY wranglers.

    We both liked them. Found them so good I just bought a set for my wife's Suburban. Except they don't make the TA KO's in her size 265/70/16 any more. Turns out this year BFG came out with TA KO2's. Center of the tread design is the same as the KO. Though the BFG did not make them in the right size. The closest size is 265/75/16. The diameter is .9" larger. No fitting problems.
