Lol. That's the issue. I gotta be able to get to the train in the snow!

so i needed new tires. i just didn't have the monies to shell out for new higher end tires
so i began to look for take-off's from dealers, tire stores, companies that send vehicles up north (since i am in south louisiana) where snow is realized :-) or other options of that nature. in one week i found Michelin LT's, 10-ply rating with 500 miles on them, a set of 4, for $400. these tires have worked very well and just thought my approach may be helpful.

It is.. Well was. She is ill. Air in the coolant. Gotta get the head gasket done. For now, the truck is now the DD. And, sometimes the DGF needs the Jeep, and that leaves me the truck.

Since you are towing with the truck, stay with LT tires. I have the same Hankook Dynapros and love them. Great tire at a reasonable price.

your taking a big chance on used tires . must check date on manufacturing and check for broken belts and out of round. I think you would be better off purchasing Dextero lt tires from Walmart . I have run them for years with no problems. price is right and can be serviced at any Walmart. last set on my Silverado 2500hd got 55000 and were still holding air when switched for a new set.

I would go with a LT tire if I were you, even if it involves buying wheels and tires. Currently I have 325/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers (load range D) on my F150, but I have 325/60/18 Cooper STTs (load range E) sitting in my garage that I am going to put on as soon as I get the truck out from its yearly winter hibernation. My truck came stock with 275/65/18 Goodyears (load range C) there was a big improvement in handling going to the Terra Grapplers, I don't expect as big of a difference with going to the STTs.

Camping friends have a 2010 Ram 1500, he has dedicated snow tires on his stock 20s and has after market 18s with 275/70/18 (load range E). He is running a small lift, 2.5" front 1.5" rear if I remember correctly.

I have a 14 Outdoorsman that came with 17" Goodyear AT's on it. I'm not a huge fan of their wear. They're not terrible, but not great either. My wife got 50,000+ miles out of the stock Bridgestone Duelers that came on her Jeep, and I'm seriously considering them for my Ram when I need tires in a year or two.=

I second the hankook dynapro atm's. I have them on my f150 and my brother bought them for his jeep commander. Loves them too.
