Make sure you check various retailers for discontinued or older tires. I just put a pair of Goodyear (the guys at the dealership I work for refer to them as 'good for a year' tires) on my 09 GMC Canyon and saved around $60 each because they were a few years old.

Ironman A/T. Used to get them for my 2004 Canyon. Then Obummer stopped the import. Trump opened it back up.

They have good sidewalls. Wear is normal.

Just over 2 years on these, no flats but they need rotated every 5-6k. About 1/4 tread left, probably get replaced before the snow flies. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Thunderer-Trac-Grip-M-T-R408-285-75R16-126-Q-Tire/215625981 ... cheap enough though! (largest size that will fit on my stock F150 crew cab 4x4)


I think the thunderer are a decent tire. We've sold a few and haven't had any problems

I also like the Dynapro ATM by Hankook, but they are replacing the ATM with the AT2 which doesn't have as good of reviews as its predecessor.

Good tires but I think they need more factory siping (sp) .

Traction was not the best on packed snow and ice

Maybe the 1/2 ton was too light for the 10 plys but I don't like flats

I have had set of Falken wildpeak At on my truck for just under a year. Very good traction in the snow, ice, and mud. Reasonably priced and pretty good looking. I had a set of cooper at3 previously but wasn't all too impressed with their performance.

The only negative I have had with the Falkens is that they throw gravel pretty good.
