    265/75/16 BFG all terrain KO's, they were on the truck when I bought it. They are wearing ok. I want to replace them with Goodyear silent armour tires when the time comes. I know a couple guys that plow with the wranglers and love them, real good traction.

    I used Wild Country Radial TXR until a few years ago, when I went to a BFG A/T tire. Didn't like that tire and now back to the Wild Countrys. They have a M/T tread and not a bad price. The current ones are studded, but don't notice a difference with the studs.

    I had the stock 265/70/17 Continental amer trac or something they sucked. Last year went to
    33/12.5/17 Procomp all terrians. Those went good but a little small. So now i am running Mickey Thompson MTZ's 35/12.5/17. They are surprisely awesome in the snow.

    Awesome tire. Treadwear is horrible. But I would probably still buy them again, if they have the $100 rebate on 4.

    Good ole Definity Mud Terrain 285/75/16's.... A quarter of the price, for just as much traction.... even if they last 2 years.. that'll do.. :cool:

    Dunlop Radial Rover R/T. The best snow and all around tire ive ever driven on! Without exageration i can plow 95% of my route in 2 wheel drive. These tires are diesel! And they are not loud at all on the dry roads. Only time i can hear a little hum is when i got the plow on and 700lbs in the bed. I looked for about a month for the best tires to buy, after reading tons of reviews i picked these.

    They got a 9.2 snow rating, 8.9 dry traction, 8.2 wet traction, 8.2 steering response, 7.5 noise comfort and a 8.3 for treadwear (which is damn good for even an all season).

    My girlfriends father got a set of those Cooper ATRs 2 seasons ago and they were great for the first season, but this year they are totally worthless, even in 4wheel he cant make it up slight slopes while pushing....that my truck can do in 2wheel with these Dunlops.

    I run Dean Wildcat All Terrain. They are made by cooper and look exactally like the Discover ATR in the first post.

    I bought them cause they were cheap 265/75/r16 for $100ea mounted and balanced. So far I have put 15,000mi on them and they still look new.

    I would rate them as average to good in the snow but IMO they have excellent wet road traction.

    The best tires I have ever plowed with was on an old beater truck that had BF goodrich all terrains. They are exceptional in the snow but not as good in the rain,
