    Get a set of Cooper M&S tires. You won't be disappointed.
  3. Snow or not

    Are you looking for a set of straight snow tires? If so, I would highly recomend the cooper discover m+s! If you are looking for a tire that you can run year round. Take a look at Nokiantires.com..........The Vativa is one of the best year round tires out. They are made in finland and have sand in the rubber for optimal snow tracttion

    i have used dedicated snow tires, all terrains and the such but by far the best i have had are mud tires. have two trucks with wildcat ext's studded. and a set of cooper m-s's, and on mine have Toyo open country m\t's that i have studded. these toyos have never clogged up provide great traction on snow\gravel and the road. and with the studs their great on ice too.

    you opened a can of worms my friend!

    I run Toyo Open Country's for summer tires- fantastic snows tho- plowing with them this season. not studded- don't benifit from studs too much in New England. I have plowed with them before also. they ARE snow rated all seasons - if you buy all season's make sure they are snow rated.

    I also have dedicated snows. Depends on the tread depth of the summers if I switch.
    Goodyear workhorse xtragrip is the #1 snow plower tire in my area- they're fantastic. Snow only- burn up in no time in summer months. (make sure you get the xtragrip not the standard workhorse)

    BFG Commercial T/Z Traction are good brand new (have the currently on winter rims) and rapidly loose traction as they wear. Half worn they are terrible.

    On my plow truck I have Cooper M/S and love them. They are the best. I also have B.F. Goodrich A/Ts which are great in mud on my beater!

    B.f. Goodrich A/t Are By Far The Best All Around Tire I Have Ever Run. There May Be Better Winter Only Tires W/ Studs, But For All Purpose They Have Great Traction ,don't Clog Up Much And Create Little Road Hum Or Vibration. I Had Mud Tires On A 4x4 Play Truck And They Gripped Great But Made Alot Of Noise On The Pavement So Get A Loud Radio If You Go W/ Mudders.

    I run Cooper M&S tires and refuse to put anything else on my trucks. last set had 85K miles on them.
  12. I was looking at the Cooper M&s yesterday ,I have also seen Nokian tires before father in law has them in Finland.I havent had good luck with BFG,I had a set of yokohama 742 liked them but they dont make them any more.Looks like Cooper is the way to go how do they handle a load? As I usually carry 150Gallons of fuel + tools etc for equipment.
    Thanks for all your input:salute:

    I run studded Cooper Discoverer M&S for winter use only. I feel that they handle a load quite well, I have a salter in the back of my truck and have put in over 2,000 lbs in with very little flex in the sidewalls. Also been using them for 3 winters (1st year with the salter) now and still plenty of tread left.

    Looking at all the posts, i noticed one tire that i think is awesome left out, Bridgestone Dueler A/T revo. Wicked snow tire, not at all noisy, You will pay a little more for them but well worth it, it transformed our old crap plow truck to one helluva snow pusher, its hard to lose the back end as well, grip really good. Check out tirerack.com for info and comparisons on different brands and what not, they are very useful.

    BFG Commercial Traction run great and wear great but are a bit on the noisey side. Had mine for two winters now and they wear like iron and have excellent traction hence the name. They also come with stud holes just in case you want to stud them. The key to the BFG Comm's is watch you air pressure make sure they have enough pressure to make a nice flat even foot print.
