Re: Winter Tire Suggestions

I was off work for Veterans Day, & got my winter tires mounted today. Stopped thru the carwash to clean things up... put the BFG A/Ts in the shed... called to check the temp... 76 degrees. Amazing weather for mid-November.

Custodian how have the tires held up. I know this is an old thread, but I imagine you have seen a few winters now with these tires. I am thinking of getting them. Worth it?

If that is the standard BFG A/T tire, yes I have used them in snow for many years.
They worked great for me.
However it was a different truck.

Tread pattern is very close to the way it was when I last used them....unless there is something in the rubber compound that is different, I don't think you'd have any problems with them.

I have read that some hate them. Others love them. Similar to what you will hear no matter what product is being asked about. :)

15x7 wheels

I know this thread is ancient, but I suspect a few people are still tuned in. I've already decided on the Blizzaks for my winter driving in the 2005 Colorado LS, but I need assistance finding a suitable wheel to mount em on. I just want something simple, cheap, black, steel.. and same size as OEM, 15x7 with standard 6x5.5 holes. Any ideas?

Check Tirerack, they often have snow tire/steel wheel combo sales and also offer simple steel wheel by themselves. Not sure if they will have the size you're looking for but might be worth a shot. Not sure what tire places you have local but pep boys, townfair tire and others can usually get decent prices on simple wheels. Goodluck!
