    Good in the snow means 3 peak symbol. Gotta start there. Do you care about the aggressive look & do you have a heavy foot? Do you care about weight & E rating? First thought it sounds like you want falkens to me. If so watch falkens on Amazon. Discount tires will match that price & it gets pretty low a couple times a year.

    Also this guy reviews a lot of tires in Blacksburg - I actually enjoy his videos & really steered me in the right direction.

    would like somewhat aggressive look
    No heavy foot unless needed.
    E rating not needed.

    i will probably get some grabbers or coopers next myself. if the falkens r on sale super cheap that is a possible buy for me too. you going to use studs? grabbers have that option. the falkens i've seen get to about $105 on Amazon for the big end of year sales

    If good in snow is a requirement, I can tell you from first hand experience the falken wildpeak AT3’s are great in the snow and other people I’ve recommended them to asking for a tire good in snow have thanked me afterwards for making the reference because they did great.

    You will also get a lot of life out of them, idk if that’s a requirement or concern but life span on then was excellent

    Thanks all
    Kolter45 - I’ve had the coopers on my last truck and they were a great tire just looking to move on from them to a tad more aggressive one
    MattiveAmerican - thanks think I will be going with the Falkens

    Keep checking the falkens on Amazon. My mom has falkens on her ram & loves them. @ the falken price point, they’re hard to beat
