^ I think you'll be pleased with the Generals. Continental will be as well. And they give you 45 days to decide. I just put the X3s on, and they are the quietest mud-ish tire I've run. Pleased with them so far as well, but the ice test is yet to be tried. 8-)

Got these put on last night and they are way grippy.

Hankook Dynapro MT 35x12.50r17, studded and machine siped on the center lugs.

I can’t wait to see how these do off-road in the snow.

Verdict is in, these things are sick. Took them snow wheeling with two inches of fresh dry powder on top of a hard base, with drifts up to ~12 inches, and a few steep hills that I was worried about. These tires gripped like crazy. I had no loss of traction on the hills, and they clawed through every drift I could find. On ice, they're a studded tire, 'nuff said about that.

If you need a dedicated winter tire that you can wheel on, this tire in this configuration is a killer setup.Image

Hey guys, I just started a thread asking this question, but I'm hoping I may get some feedback in this thread if that one gets nothing.

I just had BFG KO2s put on the truck. I've noticed that during acceleration (even very mild), I hear the rear tires making a scuffing sound, much like what it sounds like when you turn the steering wheel while stationary on pavement. But this sound is constant during acceleration, and stops as soon as I take my foot off the accelerator. Shop guy said this is normal for KO2s, but since I haven't ever heard this before, I am looking for some more input -0 particularly if any of you have experienced this. I should say the tires have about 100 miles on them now and the sound is no different than Day 1.

Yep thats normal. Thats the sound of the tread crying as two of the tires are pushing an 8000 pound truck around.

Thanks for the feedback. I wouldn't be too concerned if it weren't for a road trip coming up!
