winter tires

Hey guys, just curious as to what some of you were running for winter tires. I plow in the winter so I'm looking for some good tires. The main reason I'm asking on here is because I've heard that its hard to find tires for the stock ford rims. I have a 2005 4x4 crew cab 6.0 with the stock rims. Any helps appreciated. Thanks.

Unless you're in Russia I can't imagine having a problem finding tires.

Nokian Vatiiva A/T

Why in the world, out of all the tyres with American sounding names would you recommend this one.
I have never heard of it, you got stock in the comp. or something?

I know .. I know .... I hear it from time to time .... why Nokian .... "is that Japanese?" ... I agree the name sucks .... Nokian is finnish for journey ... the tires are designed for the weather in Finland .. but made here in America ...

I sell these tires .. and I am telling you ..... There is not a better tire when it comes to wear and traction ....

Not picking, what makes them better? Are they priced better or worse than others?

They are a silca based compound .. because of this ... they are able to build the tire with FULL depth sipes and the ability to last a long time ... they balance out like car tires and are priced less then most other premium tires ...

Just to name a couple ....

BFG K/O are great .. but you pay for every ounce of value and they balance out like **** .... plus NO mileage warranty

Michelin ... way too over priced .... same compound .. but do not last as long ...

I have sold them all and receive the most positive customer response from Nokian ....

the name sucks ... but you tend to get over that when you experience them

Have a look at GY Silent Armor. I just bought a set for my 06 F250 and they look wicked. I also read lots of good reviews on them.

Good luck

Also anyone know if they make BF goodrich mud terrains that would fit stock rims?
