I run Yokohama's Geolanders A/T on most my plow trucks, probably the best tire I have used for snow and icy roads

Toyo Open Country A/T's. Any mildy aggressive all terrain with lots of siping will work well enough.

We use BFG ATs and love em, other guys I know love the Toys too, can go wrong with an AT really. We have used the RVTs years ago and they really dont compare to the bite of the ATs.


Plowsite.com has a shitton of info for plowing, those guys can be more passionate bout plowing than some on here bout wheelin

I second this - these tires do excellent in the snow, wear well, and stay balanced. I put them on my fathers truck a year or so ago, and he's got roughly 12k on them with little wear showing. As much as I hate to say it because I used to hate Goodyear, I'm going to be putting these on my truck within the next month or so.....

snow tires are to soft of compound and typical wear really fast

we sell a shit ton of the silent armors and always hear good things from our customers when they return for their scheduled rotates etc...

i know a few guys running cooper Discoverer atr's and also a few running cooper discoverer M&S both are good tires but like stated above the actual snow tires are quite soft tread but bite really good in snow and icey conditions.

I run the Cooper ATR's for plowing and I have been very happy with them. I think BFG AT's work well too.
