    i'd stay with more of an all terrain tread, not the MT. Nice prices, whats shipping for 4 tires?

    Those Kuhmo's look nice, but they are P series, not LT. The Coopers ST-S or whatever those were do not look as good in person for snow.

    I'd stay away from the Kuhmo's. I've had 2 sets of them on 2 different trucks at the same time and both sets seperated with about 40% tread left. :angry: Just my input. That was about 2 years ago.:gunsfiring:

    I started running the coopers last year and like them. have a tailgate spreader and plowed a lot in two wheel drive. One of my friends is on his second set about 45k on the first set. Like any other aggressive tire must rotate a lot to get the best life.

    I hated the Grabbers in the snow. I'm not the only one, either.

    Those coopers LOOK like decent tires, but whether they perform well or not I couldn't tell you. I plan to put Firestone Destination M/Ts on my truck next summer.

    I have the Coopers on my truck a 2500HD & they seem to perform well as far as I can tell.
