    Blizzaks are an exceptional ice tire. I run Cooper discoverer winters, they are a good ice tire and exceptional snow tire. We get large helpings of lake effect snow here so the bit of ice traction I give up, I gain in the loose stuff. All the plow guys around here run Coopers.

    Making progress on the ash-stacking. I'm picky about my woodpiles, so they're time-consuming, but I'd prefer they didn't tip over in -25C Ontario winter.
    Will probably pull out the portable speaker and play some Bongzilla albums this evening to keep me motivated. Hard to do household chores after a full day at my "real" job.

    My dad's first suburban came with Uniroyal Tiger Paw passenger series (P prefix) tires. Not great tires but lasted about 45K. The local tire shop put on new p prefix tires of a reputable brand (can't remember which one) but it was considered a quality tire and was higher end model at that and they were wrecked in 5k miles. The shop told my dad "oh thats cause you trailer too much" which was funny because the heaviest thing that vehicle ever pulled was a 3000# boat appromimately 20 miles a year and a car trailer with 3 ATV's. He took the hit and put on Michelin LTX's and they were still on the vehicle when he sold it several years later.

    Started yesterday at the place that did the select cut. Wayne and I are cutting everything that was left on the landing and pushed into a pile and left. We cut that for the landowner we get everything left on the 40 acres. Saw some really big oak and hickory tops in the woods. That winch is going to pay for itself again. Forgot pics again.

    Snuck up behind a big tree for this pic. Since I don’t hunt them anymore I feed them.

    Blizzak , top tier tire , Cooper winter , great tire , awesome truck/plow tire , even the Cooper knockoffs work good .
    Mud terrains suck in the snow that we get here , they just turn into useless big round spinning things unless they scallop before the snow then they become noisy useless big round spinning things .
    The Firestones on the Fords were deadly , couldn't even balance them on a new install and they would look to spin fine on the balancer but you were always chasing to add weight every time you spin .

    Figured out how to get even with the grand kids. Put in a room with a newspaper, a rotary dial phone, a black & white tv with rabbit ears and dial channel selector and food that must be cooked on a stove. I figure 2 days max before they cave in.

    I have three different brands on the truck right now. The deepest one is a general grabber.

    Big fan of Cooper. Have had great luck with many different variations. Think they are the last USA made tire.

    Hankooks on the other hand gave me nothing but issues. Had 3 sets warrantied in a year.

    I had Coopers on the Escape, and on one (or both) of my T Birds (had an 85 Turbo Coupe and 92 Super Coupe).

    But sometimes they don't make the size I want in the tire I want.

    Have had good luck with the Blazzaks, but will have to keep the Cooper Snows in mind in the future. Always liked their tires.
