I Need Tires?

Recommended Posts

Well the time has come for new tires, my Bridgestone dueller A/T revos are looking more like racing slicks. I do alot of snow and ice driving in the winter time, I need a tire that will hold its own in deep, and well packed snow. I also need a load range E tire, as I do a bit of towing, and tires seem to last longer when rated as an E. Tires also need to handle off-road conditions as I do tend to enter the bush in search for firewood The tires on my shortlist are the BFG A/T, and the Toyo open country M/T. The truck is a 1998 Dodge 3/4T 24V Cummins 4x4. Any thoughts or tire suggestions? Thanks:thumbsup:

Another vote for BFG A/T's. This is all I buy. They last a long time and work great in the snow and almost any other condition except mud. They also have a 3 ply sidewall while most others have 2 ply.

the M-55's are also on my short list, however the local retailer says they give a stiff rough ride. I don't know

Any tire with a load range E is gonna be stiff. That is the price you pay in order to carry the load. Although I recomended the BFG, I have heard good things about Toyo too. Find a good shop and go with the tire that you can get a better deal on.

Continental if your lookin for good truck tires. Still look brand new after 12000 miles on an F-450.

I just installed my second set of Toyo MT's and they are a great performing tire in all aspects except for wear - I had to replace them at 26k miles - too soon in my opinion but it's partially due to the way I drive the truck (04 Dodge 2500 4x4 long bed)
