    There are a bazillion threads on this. Tires work just the same on any kind of truck. So, tires that are good for a 4wd are also good for a 2wd.

    My recommendation would be Mastercraft MSR with studs if they are legal. I would also put them on the front. Stopping and steering is important too. I run 235/85/16 in the winter. Just a bit taller and narrower than the 245/75/16.

    Good luck.

    Goodyear just came out with a new tire in January that I have on my truck. It's the Goodyear DuraTrac. It's got the new mud and snow rating, and was designed for trailering and off road use. It's available in 245, 265, and 285 all in E load range. I would suggest 245/75R16 or 265/75R16.
