Oh - I forgot. Cooper makes a really interesting tire model called the S/T. Kind of a cross between a light mud tire and an aggresive AT. If I spent much time in snow this tire would be a great choice. Does not come in 295 75 R16 size and their 315's are the biggest 315 on the market so I've ruled them out.

Trying the Nitto Terra Grappler 295/75/16 right now. Balanced up and rides better than the the BFG KO's that I am used too. Does sing a little bit at higher speeds, but it has deeper treads. 40$ cheaper a tire was enough for me to try them out. If you tow or haul anything more than 30% of the time, you will not get more than 35k out of a set of BFG KO's. I have ran 5-6 sets of them over the last 3-4 years on my SD trucks and I wear them down to the very end. Now if you have a light verhicle like a half ton or SUV you can surely get 50k out of a set. My buddy just got 60k out of a set on his H2. Just depends on your application and how you treat them!

I put just over 80,000 miles on the 99 F250 7.3 4x4 with 295 BFG ATKOS. The first set was $850 with tax and mounting, the same place wanted $940 for the same tires two years later, got them at tirerack for $740 plus $60 for mounting and such. Sears had these tires for $135 just before Christman last year.

The 285 Yokahomas are good tires as well and my budy has tons of miles on his set on his 99 1 ton 4x4 diesel and are way cheaper then the BFG's.

I have toyo open country a/t's on my truck and have been totally satisfied with them. They were suggested to me by the tire dealer due to their snow traction rating. They come in sizes up to an E load rating and cost about the same as BFG's. They seem to be a really good all around tire. Definitely better than the GoodYear RT/S's that came on it

Hey is it true.... ( for you guys in the snow alot)....A thinner tire is better in the snow?
I heard that it has less resistance than a wider tire

yes a skinny tire "cuts" through the snow and get's down to get you the traction. Wide tires plow through it, almost hydroplaning, if you would like to call it that.

Same thing around here. I know of a bunch who switched over and swear they will never go back. Revos are definately my next tire for the 250.
