Question is in the title. But... I am curious... do you plow with over sized tires? I want something beefy in the Nitto Trail Grappler or Toyo Open Country style look, but honestly it needs to be something that is very good in snow (Too many random mixed reviews on the two I listed so if you have experience on the matter chime in here). Do you plow with 35's? I am thinking about getting something in the 295/70/17 range, any suggestions? (I have a 2" level kit).

Thanks!

Dura trac is a good snow tire from what I read, but do you have anything to compare them to?

I've run 4 sets of toyo mt's they aren't bad in the snow, they aren't great. I will say this, my plow guy at my office uses them on his plow truck. I'll ask his opinion.

BFG A/T, Wrangler Silent armor, Wrangler AT/S, Nitto Terras and Michelin AT2's, Duratrac while the loudest is far(or this '14 is too damn quiet..lol) and away the best all purpose snow tire I've ever driven.

They can do light snow which a M/T is borderline dangerous on and chew through deeper stuff the way a M/T does excel at.

I run Good Year Wrangler Duratracs right now AND LOVE THEM! but... they do not stay in load range E once they hit 285/70/17 they become a D... I made that mistake once and it was an all around horrible experience. So whatever I go with needs to be 295/70/17 Load Range E.


I ran BF Goodrich AT/2 TKO's one season and was not overly impressed..

Find 18" take offs from a '14 and run the 295/65 i have, 3860lb load rating, though they are only a 33" tire. With 3.42's i wanted to stay stock height.

I will preach this until the day I'm dead. Even as a ghost. Dunlop is the only choice. Dunlop, Dunlop, Dunlop... There are no other choices.

I have a set of 295/65/18 and method 18x9 double standards sitting at discount waiting for me. I'm kind of having second thoughts, like u should have gone 20" and like a 305/55/20.

Hoping I made the right choice.

Yah that's fine, but you've done nothing but throw out a mfg name. Care to elaborate?

The GY doesnt have the strongest sidewall ever, I'm sure the huge payload of the 18" tire will be welcome.

Cooper AT3 are E rated and handle excellent in snow conditions IMO, would hold up to the work of plowing.
