Good snow tires for a 2500?

OK...
It's my plow truck (04 2500 HD 4x4). Stuck way too many times, sliding all over the place yesterday. I actually had to shovel twice (once was
my fault, no tires would have gotten me off that tree stump!)
I'm going to go with some much more agressive tires... My OEM ones are almost done anyway (and I have a second set of OEM tires to use in the summer anyway), so any suggestions for a good, very agressive, snow tire?

If you want the best imo go with a Blizzak dedicated tire. I've used them on a few trucks and they are fantastic.
If you get stuck with these, you need to learn how to plow. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Blizzak+W965
These are a E load rated tire.

No, I became tired of pulling out stuck plow trucks that used Revo's<BFG>
Actually I don't know a thing about the Revo's other than you love them.

I've had a set of Bridgestone Revo's on my plow truck for at least 6-7 years. While they may not be as good as Blizzaks, they do the job very well for an all season tire. Plus they are not "real" noisey on the road.

If a truck had as much weight as your does in it, I could plow with a set of drag slicks on all four corners.
Geeesh, talk about compensatory weight.<G>

Problem is that the weight doesn't help with sideways slides... No matter how much weight in the cab, you's goin' where you don't want to go in that case! (I actually slid it around three times trying to turn around, which worked better than if I'd had traction!

I actually love the tires I just bought for my Dakota 4x4, they're Falken High country all terrain. I think they look a lot more aggressive than the revo's and are usually cheaper to buy. I bought 31 10:50's for about 500 for a set.
Amazon has (Amazon.com product link shortened) which is from this guy http://www.1010tires.com/tire.asp?tirebrand lken&tiremodel=High+Country+A%2FT for 109, some times orders at Amazon, over 100 are free ship, I don't know if that is true for tires though... :P
still, if your tire guys carry them, they aren't big name big price tires, but 3 of 4 cars I own run falkens, and I like em as much or better than most similar priced tires, and better than buying high priced tires..

Glad your happy with them and they may work on a Dak. But the op is plowing snow. Looking aggresive doesn't move snow. Traction does.

Just a dusting but the wind that we are getting is a whole different story. A high dollar hooker only wishes she could blow this hard..

In NH, we got about 8 inches of snot snow. A real bit** to drive in, plowing was a real experience...

Jaffrey, about 30 miles west of Nashua... A very bad storm plowing wise, ground was not frozen, so non-paved driveways dug up, the stuff was heavy and sticky. Ugly stuff.

I take my time, but those fools in the Toyotas and Hondas don't seem to see it that way... What makes people think that they should pass a truck with a snow plow because they *think* they can go faster?
(I do wave as I pass them while they are in the ditch, too...)

Goodyear Workhorse XTRA Grips. Great tire for plow work. Can be studded as well and shrugs off the curbs and hidden items.
