    I'm looking to install new snow tires on a 08 f150. Does anyone have any recommendation for a real good plowing tire?
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm running Goodyear Silent Armor's 285/70/18.

    On the other trucks:
    Cooper Discover M+S
    Cooper Discover ATR
    Bridgestone Dueler APT III
    Firestone Destination MT
    FIrestone Steeltex

    Haven't had any problems with them. My top two would be the Cooper M+S #1, Goodyears #2. My only issue with Goodyear is they can't be studded.

    Goodyear Workhorse

    Pinned for studs, 10 ply, long lasting wear, little road noise, great traction year round. I recommend them to anyone.

    There are lots of good tires, anything with a lot of siping will work well.

    I run the Workhorses too and love them. To each his own though. There's some good options out there.

    I think it would make a lot more sense.

    How do the Goodyears compare to BFG or Cooper in price ??

    Friend has to reshoe his F350 and needs to shave $$

    I had 3 sets of BFGs and a set of Scorpions
    and went with Coopers and never had a better tire for traction or ride

    Cheapest I could find the Goodyear Workhorses was about $190 a piece, and that didn't include install or studding 'em.
