Looking for some input before I pull the trigger:
There is a set of studded Cooper Discover M+S Snow Groove 265 70 R16 in claiming great condition (1 season) for sale in my area for $250 obo. I've been pondering running dedicated snows this winter for I use to do a rim/tire swap on all my old Toyota trucks before tire monitors systems.
What is on my truck now is a winter-rated A/T but that did me little good when I hit black ice & had a little fender bender
Has anybody used these specific tires? Vermont laws let you run studs so thats not a problem and I do run studs on my car (nokian) just never on my truck. In the past, its been Blizzaks. Because of the accident, I think I need something with a little more bite. FWIW, I do a lot of inclement driving because I snowmobile and ski, plus many backroads which are not paved.
