Tires for snow?

2006 truck running a 4.5" Rough Country lift on 18x9 Gear wheels and 35x12.5 Toyo M/T's. The tires are getting worn down and will be needing to buy new ones soon. I haven't really found an A/T tire that's aggressive enough to pull off a lift but generally the A/T's seem to do better in the snow. Almost thinking of just going with a set of Federal Couragia M/T's and sucking it up.

Thoughts?

I think the open country at 2 looks pretty mean for an all terrain.

Those aren't half bad, but they still don't quite compare to an M/T.

A good tire too, but super pricey.

pricey compared to what?

they are way cheaper than toyos.

cheaper than bfg's.

if i remember correctly if i wanted 315's instead of 285's i would have only paid an extra 75 bucks or so.
i paid 1250 for my 285's.

thats was with their replacement guarantee. they were like a grand for just the tires and installation.

I guess I was thinking the Goodyear Wrangler Duractrac with Kevlar. Those are expensive. I've never really been a Goodyear fan though. So far I'm still thinking of going with the Federal Couragia's. Found them in 35x12.5x18 for 1200 shipped to my door.

I vote for the BFG's. For me these are great tires. Wife runs them on the Suburban and I run them on the work truck as well as my dually.

Been doing some more searching. I have a feeling the Federal Couragia's are going to be too much of a mud terrain to be driving mostly on the road. They're more to the tune of a Nitto Mud Grappler than they are a Toyo Open Country M/T. I just know I want a 35x12.5x18. I'm assuming I'm going to want a Load Range E and not a D. I also know I want something aggressive looking for the 4.5" lift. Most tires rated as an A/T I don't think are aggressive enough.
