Gotcha! Well definitely look at the duratrac or other snowflake rated tires so you dont have to chain up when they have restrictions around the lake and on the passes!
Other snowflake rated tires that come to mind(but less agressive) are BFG AT, Hankook AT-M, and General Grabber AT2 (all up to load D. Load E are not snowflake rated, but who wants E tires on a midsize truck anyways!?)

Check out the Reno BS thread too if interested in joining in meets, mod days, and 4x4 trips You'll only be an hour away tops

Duratracs come siped, and I heard terrible things about km2s and ice/snow. For all terrain tires with an aggressive look everyone said duratracs were the best. They are pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. Mine are load C

lol Eric was sliding all over the place in 4wd with his KM2s aired down. I follow him in 2wd on my all terrains without slipping a tire. I'd rather have duratracs though.

My old Hankook MT tires were bitching in the snow..I had 3 sets before I moved on to my generals. Overall the hankooks were great except for how fast they wore out..

Does anyone actually know why mud tires are bad for snow? Less the tread pattern, it's softer rubber, and will get hard when it freezes....duratracs suck, just like most tires do in snow, I have them and drive in snow everyday and they're no better or worse than other tires I've had.

Are those duratracs the "Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac"? Sounds like these are the way to go for a basic tire upgrade.

I'm making due with the factory tires for now to try and get 2 years out of them. The factory tires are aweful, the smallest amount of moisture on the ground makes the truck feel like it has 25% of the normal dry road adhesion, and totally kills any type of panic braking confidence.

Snow example - The road conditions during that Oct snow storm which I believe in my area had a base layer of ice with snow on top (and no salt/sand at all). the slightest amount of throttle made my rear 'waggle' a bit in 2wd...at that point I put on the 4wd, and this was traveling on a highway at 15-20mph safely behind other cars. This slipping went away in 4wd. These tires still have plenty of tread left too.

Light rain on grass example - Then this past weekend, I'm slowly moving some small split firewood piles to my main firewood pile using my truck in 4wd and there is a gradual mist/rain occuring. I've done this before while my yard (which has minor grades) was dry and there was no slip at all, but with slightly a moist ground I could tell my wheels were spinning on top of the grass before I got moving. Luckily I didn't tear up my lawn anywhere , but I had to resort to using the wheelbarrow to finish the job as the light misting continued (it was more work-efficient too even though I personally had to work harder). The factory tires are just terrible, and I can't believe they are legal. Dry pavement they are acceptable at best. I'm sure they are terrible on rocks or any type of wet trail.

Anyone else have similiar feelings with the factory BF goodriches?

I am running duratracs with studs. These things are insane. I go places in 2WD just for shits and giggles to see if I can. Rarely do I need 4WD anymore.

I have tried Toyo AT in the past and BFG AT. They don't compare to the Duratracs.
