    well i just put cooper atr's on my 2500hd and i could not believe the difference ,i had factory Firestone's .the cooper's had sipe's and the perceived difference was phenomenal, man the tires grabbed the road that much better you could tell the difference in the steering wheel ,they added so much traction .i know my old man was using them on over the road truck tire's for year's ,on all his recap tire's especially .they put a ton of mile's on them .

    I just put a 4 pack of these on my dually and will be buying them for everything from now on.
    I have 8k miles on them and they look like they did the day I bought them. Very good traction wet, dry, or snow, clean themselves out good in the mud and are quiet. Hankook ATm RF10.

    Just do a search and don't waste the space with yet ANOTHER thread where everyone lists their favorite brands. Its been done to death.

    1000 different tires, 1000 different trucks, a million different answers.

    It really is pointless to debate tires. One tire that is good on a 8500lb, locked Superduty could suck on a 4000lb, open rear Ranger.

    im sure.. i have them on my 91 F150... theyre an awesome tire, especially for that truck, its 2wd! with some weight i can get around in the snow great.

    My 06 F350 has load range E tires, their 265/70/18s i think, Continental contritrac TRs that ford puts on factory, i like them, but they do suck major in the snow, i was spinning all 4 wheels with ease in the snow with the heavy boss V plow on the spreader and a pallet of salt :(

    Duelers arnt made in 18s or are only made to a certain weight class for 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks i think.

    I want the ford 20s, but then im ONLY limited to my tires now or BFG all terain K/Os at $350 a tire or whatever :/
