I made it up the alcan. About 2400 miles towing a gooseneck trailer that I am guessing was 8-10k lbs.

Studded Ipikes did great, and I got to run them in a lot of variations of snow/ice. 1000 ft/lbs makes towing a trailer way nicer.

Good to hear. I am not familiar with Ipikes.

I put Cooper at3 xlts on my ram 3500. I really like them in all weather and their handling with and without a load.

I tried the Duratrack a few years on my 98 Ram. I had about 17K #'s. Truck, camper, horse trailer, gear ,mules. Using a load leveling hitch. Even at max pressure of 80 pounds they were squirmy. I switched to the Cooper M&S and they were a lot better. Stiffer side walls stopped that. Both were E load range.

I have heard they have been changed though. Anyone know about that?

On my 2019 Duramax, 2500HD it has the factory Firestone on it. They are about 1/2 way between the Duratrack and the Cooper.

I don't do mud as I never been in that situation. I was only in deep snow once. 2ft + but I had chains all for with the Coopers. Two Dodge diesels chained together, pulling an empty 20 ft gooseneck up a steep FS road get out.

Around home with the Chevy or Dodge empty, 4wd is a must with any snow or ice. One steep hill where I hunt is loose gravel and the rears will spin, that requires 4wd ,even with the heavy load.

Looking to put new tires on next year. How do the Toyo Open Country M/T handle under heavy loads?

I run Toyo, Nitto, Nokian and Michelin.

Nokian is the best IMHO... Value and Durability.
