Just signed the papers to take delivery of my first ever pickup truck. It's just about as basic as you can get and that's what I was looking for. Used 09 5-Lug regular cab with 26k miles. I don't actually have it yet, they're bringing it to me tomorrow.
The first order of business is to get a set of good winter tires. The tires that are on it now are decent all-seasons but I live in Vermont and all-seasons don't cut it. It's also a good excuse to size up from the silly-looking stock size. Can anyone recommend some good, reasonably-priced tires that will get me through a blizzard? I'm a firefighter, so chances are I will have to drive in every single bad storm that we get. I don't do any off-roading (the closest thing would be a trail that leads to my buddy's camp, but my old Honda Element could handle it without too much trouble).
Thanks guys! I've already learned a ton about my new truck just by lurking around these forums.
