Are you sure you were not running the old 36" bias ply tires?

I know its a superduty, but here is a few pictures...

Did they look like those he has, or did they look like these?

I've heard you say that and I honestly think your fos on this... I have over 25k on this set now and no traction issues on wet roads, no traction issues on icy or snow covered roads. I drove back and forth over the pass all winter this year on them without issue.

Drove 3000 miles in 3 days, most of it at or above 70 mph without issue. I will continue to run them until I can't get them anymore.

Apparently my N/A 6.9 must have more power than your SD. Because I could spin the tires with hardly touching the throttle. I hated the tires so much I GAVE them away. I will say they had GOOD road manors on a DRY road. No noise and decent traction with good ride. But my trucks leave the pavement every once and a while and didnt feel the need to always be in 4wd to drive thru my YARD
