I installed the that Micheline LTX At2 on my 08 and like them. That said, many of the 6.7 owners are experiencing fast tire wear on the new trucks. I really doubt that any E rated tire is going to give you a quiet ride, be great in snow and last 50k miles. Just too much to ask from a tire on these trucks IMO. If I was in real snow country i'd buy a set of winter wheels/tires for good snow perfromance. I like the Michelins better that the OEM GY's but they squirm more when trailering. If you find a better solution, let us know.

If you want something good in the snow and mud check out the wrangler Dura trac. I have them and I have about 38k miles on them and I have a little under half life left. They work great.

Thanks , I have been looking at them also, definitely have a great tread design for snow and some mud how are they for noise. I know they must make some but i dont want to hear them howl. Truck came with goodyear wrangler ATS but they have about 30 k and are almost shot wore nice and even with no cupping but but once tire gets about 1/2 worn it has no sipping left and it is a total different tire , have to use 4x4 alot. But they were great for towing and hauling my camper. If you dont mind , where did you get them and how much? JIM

I'm planning on a set of Goodyear Dura Tracs for my new tires. I have been reading really good things about them....quiet, good wear, excellent snow traction etc...

Really I haven't notice any road noise out of them. But then again I usually have my music going plus my exhaust with the down pipe added I have notice a deep tone in my exhaust note. So I can't really hear anything outside.

Neither one of those are good snow tires.

I put a set of 35/12.50R20 Toyo M/T's on my truck about 4k miles ago. I can't tell you how happy I have been with them so far. They have EXCELLENT traction in wet grass, muddy conditions, and in the snow we have had thus far this year! Don't know what treadwear will be yet, but have heard good reviews on them. PLUS...they look GREAT!
