    Looking to get some new tires, any suggestions? I was thinking either Goodyear Silent Armor or Hankook Dynapro

    If you are looking for a dedicated snow/winter tire Nokian Hakkapeliitta's are the way to go.

    Mastercraft courser MSR's as skinny as you can go. I personally run 245's and run them year round even though they are snow tires

    What are your primary deciding factors? Appearance? Performance - in what conditions? Treadlife? Noise?

    Or just get round tubeless pneumatic tyres.

    I put General Grabber AT2 on my dually in june. They give good wet and dry traction and seem to be doing pretty good in the snow so far. I got a killer deal on them 1500 bought and installed.

    Im really liking these Copper Discovery AT3's. I am done with General Grabber AT2's, this last set has a whoppin' 8800 miles since new and I have 6 and 7/32 left, I think they are absolute junk! Again, these Cooper's are doing well so far.

    I had Yokahama Geolander A/T's on my 05 Ram 3500. I got 75000 miles from them. Just installed another set and they are wearing well. Got them at discount tire. Free rotations every 5,000 miles. Well worth it with a big truck.

    I have a set of hankook dynapro atms on one truck... very good traction in all conditions and seems to wear like iron. Also have a set of 10 ply BFG all terrains on the diesel and plowed all last storm in 2 wheel drive seemed to have excellent grip.

    I like summer and winter sets. Tall and skinny for the winter....

    My last set of Wranglers were cheap and worked great in snow/ice considering how aggressive they were. Although they are not the most sylish combination it can equate to wearing dress shoes to shovel sidewalks.

    I am not a fan of the stock 285-70-17 BFG AT's on my wagon

    I think the truck is just geared so low it puts too much torque to the wheels and they spin real easy (I can 4wd drift the truck with ease too (2wd, kinda a joke).

    Granted they are 1/2 warn but I was expecting OMG traction from them based on reviews....and I hate how they throw rock like a MOFO!

    Next set is Toyo M/T's or Nitto Trail (With added siping), the AT's tend to pack up easy and not clean out as well.

    I just got a set of Hankook Dynapro Atm's installed this weekend. So far they seem good but the true test will be in the snow

    I actually have the TA KO'S whether they are different from what you are talking about im not sure... All i know is that with only about 300lbs in the bed i hardly had to take it out of 2wd granted it was only 3" but i plow driveways and some are pretty steep.

    Have the dynapro's on my 1500 they are awesome. the ride is great and ive got about 40k on them and they only look about half worn

    I see you already have tires but for anyone reading this thread... The Nitto Dura Grapplers suck. They are wearing for crap and are dry rotted. I have. Them in a 285/75 17

    I am on my third season with Dynapros. Run them all year and gotta say I am very happy with them. Got about 20k on them so far.

    I got dynapro atm on the dually now i run all year round alot of highway and alot of snow and rain they hold good on road since i do 100 every where i go lol and same in snow and rain. i was very impressed with the wear on these and how good they perform in the snow until this year they are getting worn so not so good in snow but still great on the road. i was going to get another set but got good deal on goodyear sra wranglers for 800.00 all 6 so i going that way this year they are said to be very good we will see.
