Probably a little off topic, but what Iíve learned is once you have to chain up your tires donít really matter anymore, they just need to be round and hold air.

The chains are whatís doing the work.

But my favorite unchained are Goodyear Duratracks.👍

This and carry chains.

Yokahama Geolander M/Tís

I got 50k out of a set on my 3/4 ton Cummins. They are the best tire as far as traction and longevity that Iíve found.

Chains are great.  The bad part is some of the newer trucks will not accept chains on the front.   I know on my 2016 Duramax chains are a no go on the front.

I have 38Ē Toyo M/Ts on my lifted 2001 GMC 3500hd 8.1L
The first set (on my third now) were very good, next two Iíve had siped,
They are awesome on ice and better in snow.
Never had to chain up, even when I hunted the late season Swakane 4yrs ago
But I did help three guys out of the ditch that wished they would have.
One shot. One kill!

I am on my 2nd set of Cooper Discoverer AT/3's and have been really happy with them. They are pretty quiet for an all terrain, ride nice, and are really grippy in snow. I got 50k out of the first set.

Another vote for Coopers as I run them on everything and have never been disappointed.

I pulled the trigger on a set of Falken Wildpeak AT3s.  Discount wanted 307 a tire.  They ended up matching Walmart price of 264.  Well see how they hold up.
