I'm looking for the best all-around winter tire that will give me good grip over the snow with my '96 f150 supercab. My truck has handled well over the pass for the past couple of years with a set of Toyo A/T's and I want to get a new set of tires for more grip on snow.
I've heard good things about both of these tires and wanted to hear if anyone had some opinions on them. I'd like to use the tires for mountain driving as well as maybe a snow plowing in the future.
I just saw this post. Don't know if you are still looking or not. I have been researching tires for my Expedition lately and had looked at the XTX's, too. They are RMA Snowflake certified, as well, so they should do very well in snow, and probably at a considerable savings over the Goodyears. No personal experience with either, though. Just offering my $0.02.
That's the impression i've gotten, the XTX is cheaper but I just wanted to see which performed better. This came up ever since I saw a diesel Tech article where they used the Goodyear tires for snowplowing and swore they worked amazingly well.
Ive been running the XTX Sports for almost 20k. They have been great in the snow so far and the wear has been pretty good as well. I haven't run the Goodyears and its been years since I ran Toyo AT's so I can't really comment on how they compare. Good luck with the decision.
