I like those tires. Im thinking of changeing mine in the spring.The stock tires arent very agressive, and honestly look too small.
What size would I be able to go to, and can I have the speedo adjusted....thanks for the help
I was thinking of the 265,, how much taller is a 265. the stock are 245....:beatsme
This year looks like that last season for my Michelins. Not that great for snow traction either I might add. They wore evenly but big deal!
I spoke to two guys at a gun range that just happened to be discussing their tires. The one had the Discoverer M/S and hated them from very quick wear out (15Kmi and wearbars are showing). The other fella had the Bridgestones and loves them so far. Neither guys plow. The Cooper user did a tremendous of highway driving/towing.
Any comments about the BF Goodrich A/T in a load range E?
Or how about these Cooper Discoverer S/T tires over the M/S? I plan to keep the tires on factory alloy wheels year round so they will see dry pavement and lots of towing too. What ya think?
I have a set of Dayton Timberline 245/75 R16 E series, 10 ply, on my rig....don't do much pushin, but i've pulled a few fords outta the mud with them :burnout pretty solid tire, wear is minimal ( maybe cause the trucks parked ) but seem like a great tire for the truck....
Ive run the Coopers on all my trucks,thats all I use now. I have set of S/T's,and A/T s on different wheels for different seasons.I also have the M/Ss on my other truck.They are great all around tires ,IMO. The ATs have great traction on the rear of my Ram,snow traction of the AT is slightly worse than BFG all terrain KO's.,but the Ms 's are better,so are the S/T's. Tire life is at east as good as the BFG's if not better. When i had BFG 285/75/r16s I could spin them well into third gear on hot,clean dry blacktop with "only 450HP", now with 550hp on #2 I can spin these coopers into 3rd easliy,but when i had 450hp,they hooked quickly in 2nd gear after the 1-2 shift(barks tires). Pelican I'd go with the M/S you wont be dissapointed
I had a set of those General Grabbers, I'll never own another one. ThHe Kumho M/Ts look pretty good, they are supposed to be great in snow as well. It's a toss up between the Kumhos or a set of BFG A/T's next time.
What problems did you have with the Grabbers? Were they the M/T's or A/T's? I have the BFG A/T's on my plow truck now, have not used them in the snow yet but they look like they will do well. How much to the Kumhos go for?:cash
