Re: Which tire?

VW: $248-$25 rebate at Kal-Tire until the end of the month. They have ample clearence, about 3/4 " at the tightest on a turn at the rear of the wheel well, suspension not compressed (with these springs, there ain't much compressing going on).

Re: Which tire?

I have been doing a ton a research on what works for heavy trucks. And I keep coming back to the Hankook Dynapro MT (they also have and AT) all the user reviews say it is a 60k+ mile tire on a diesel goes great in the snow +for me in Colorado. I had a used set I ran for a short while (came with the rims I bought) and even with minimal tread they did go great in the snow. And were pretty quiet but one had a balance issue, but being used and not knowing the history of them the balance issue does not make me lean one way or the other. I also like that the MT tread is more of an all terrain tread than most MTs and more aggressive than most AT tires. Has anyone ran them for any amount of time?
