Dually in Winter + Tire Setup?

How do some of you like your Dually's in winter time. I know it can't be to bad but compared to a regular SRW. I have plowed with a Dump plenty but may be gettin a 2002 Ex cab long bed dually 4x4 of course. Curious if some love it or if it is really a big defference. Also how plowin with one is. I know the front end is bullet proof, but as far as how big a plow you run and just what tires you recommend. I love having an All terrain tire. I ultimately love my BF T/A's so is that something I can run on the dually? That would be awsome haha. Also what wheel size is functional. 16/17? I would LOVE 19.5's or something like that for summer big rig style so show me what you have or what you run and suggest!
Thanks

Thats what I figured and liked to here. I need to start researching tire sizes. I also would consider a leveling kit in front an block in rear or something. Does have airbags so I dn't need a rake setup. Bf's rock haha

I'm running Goodyear Workhorses 235/85 16's, rears studded, 420 lbs of sand over the axle. 24 oz of lucas trans fix for anti-slip, valvoline synthetic Mercon V to finish it off. 4.10 Axles have been dosed with posi conditioner and filled with 80-140 synthetic Lucas gear lube. Also dumped the auto-hubs for a set of mile marker hubs.

Plowing with a 9' Boss V, could easily handle a 10' V.

Drives great, no worries about sliding, needs rear weight for sure though, before I got my sand this year I had a few scary moments. Make a box that holds the weights over the axle or get ready for a bent headboard in the box.
