    ok so now that im in the correct section of the forum. i am looking at getting some new studded snow tires but i don't need any of these load range E and Ds since i don't usually carry much of anything. i was curious of what my options are ? i am somewhat limited by the only local tire suppliers in this area are primarily les schwabs and wallmart so preferably something that they would carry, but there is a local guy who supposdely does good work and can order just about any. i would prefer a m/t tire with studs and siped.

    If you are only using this as a "snow setup", I'd go with the BFG a\t's or a true snow tire, Blizzak/Michelin etc....... It also depends on where you live....here central ohio we rarely get more than six inches of snow fall in any single storm in the winter. In my experience m\t suck on the roads, I had a set of BFG KM's siped. In hindsight, I would have gone with an a\t because I never go hardcore off roading anymore :) Good Luck with your choices

    well these will also be used for going up in the mountains when im more used to driving in the snow it will have the studs pulled most likely. this will be my first winter with a truck and driving a manual. but as for snow we got 2 feet of snow on the ground for most of the winter least year. or i could runs 3 sets of tires but that seems kinda stupid to run a summer winter and moutain tire seperatly but thats just me. im trying to get away with just 2.

    I drove 800km with my tires this weekend and they weren't too bad as far as road noise goes. No where as quiet as summer tires but they were tollerable (spelling??).

    We get a LOT of snow and ice here on the east coast (north of Maine) and I think the tires I listed above should be excellent.

    Cheers.
