    Tires are inflated as per manufacturers specifications.

    Measured off the new set and they are wearing evenly.

    Just the way they are designed I guess.
    Great hwy/city tire for the first 50%.

    But for $2800 I expect more.

    Re: Best snow tire for a 1 ton?

    I'm running Firestone Winterforce LT's (studded) on my 1 ton Dodge diesel. 5th winter on these, used them on two previous trucks. Always hauling or towing heavy loads, probably have about 40-45000 km on them with at least 50% tread left. They work well on ice, not the greatest east in heavy loose snow pulling the enclosed up a trail, that's when the chains go on. But they are a far better tire then the studded Hankook iPikes or Duratracs I ran previously...

    Best snow tire for a 1 ton?

    Cooper Discoverer tires are great in the snow and when studded great on ice as well. The wife and I both have them. Hers are studded and mine are not. You can tell the difference for sure.

    I'm with Ric. Every set of 10 ply I've had on a 3/4 ton, if you run the inflation anywhere near their spec, it'll wear the center of the tread off. That rating is to cover their butt for someone loaded to the balls, all the time. Unless you have one big snot clobbering trailer with a pile of tongue weight, anything over 50 psi is too much.

    Thats just the way the Hakks wear. I am about to finish my second set off here in the next few weeks and I have tried running anywhere from 40-60 psi with the same result. I run a 1 ton dually duramax and sometimes loaded to the max but more then not empty. They are a great tire as stated but only till you hit about 50%, then the performance fades fast. I am currently trying to decide on my next set to get as I am tired of these things lasting 2 to 3 seasons tops.

    Re: Best snow tire for a 1 ton?

    That’s the problem with most of the winter tires for any vehicle. Only the first half of the tread depth is the softer compound. The coopers on my half ton are like that. Supposedly Michelin are the softer compound all the way through but not many people run them on trucks. What would be interesting is to hear from guys that are still getting good performance out of their winter tires that are over half way worn out. I guess running studs would help that problem out.

    Best snow tire for a 1 ton?

    I usually stretch my Hakks out for two winters. End of the second year they aren’t superb, but still a world better than lots of M+S tires on slick roads in the cold.

    they are pretty poor for between season/breakup type icy muck after winter #2

    Thinking of getting into a pattern of selling last years set every fall and getting a new set every year
