Studded snow tires,

Just got a set of goodyear ultra grip ice 275 70 18 ( increase size to carry weight) with studs installed, the depth of the
studs was very inconsistent so they are going back to tire rack. How do I know if the correct stud type are being installed when i get the replacement pair? If you read this article you learn that there are different types of studds and that each manufacturer has a different type but do not install them. This is done at the dealer. Quality Control: Don?t Accept Inferior Stud Installation | Saskatchewan Studded Tire Club The exception to this is nokian but can't seem to find them. This is the second set of studded tire I have put on my 2011 chevy 3500 with an arctic fox 990 truck camper. They first where firestone winter force lt, same size. I did not inspect those before they where installed and many studs where gone after the first season and I am wondering if that was due to improper installation, incorrect stud type, poor tire selection or just a lot of weight. They worked well in snow and ice. I have tried to contact both goodyear and tire rack but both are clueless about studs to my horror. I choose the goodyears this time because of a tire test, they did best with the exception of the blizzacks but my size is on back order and it is unknown when they will be produced

I've been running my studded Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice (275/70/18) tires since the winter of 2012/13. The studs and tread both look good still. They are a great winter tire, but through the years the sizes they made varied so much it was hard to find them in a size similar to factory tires.

I have never seen a tire come pre-studded up here in Alaska. Local shops and dealers have to install the studs and they are all simple pins. Those fancy pins in that link are factory European tires and studs, I have never seen anything like that in use. My tires were studded at a Wingfoot shop (Good Year commercial big truck tire shop), then mounted and road force balanced at my local GM dealer.

Just got off the phone with goodyear corporate and they said that we, as in the U.S. market only get a simple pin and the company Brunowessel.com is the manufacturer. The stud that fits 275/70 18 is a number 15 and brunowessel has a video on there site about proper stud installation. The tires that I got from tire rack where installed incorrectly and it is the installer that did a poor job. Tire rack is sending me a out a new set. That hopefully will be correct.

Hi Guys ; I haven't heard alot about the Falken Wildpeaks AT3W in the LT275/70r18/10 which have seen some reviews on them which sounded good . I have a 2015 Chev Silverado 3500 Duramax I pull a 35ft 5th wheel toyhauler loaded down good most of the time on gravel roads and pavement ,but in snow once in awhile . I want to get some mileage out of them , my last set of tires were Yoko Geolander AT Go15 which had an 80 thousand ks warranty got 40,so not happy ,what are your thoughts. Take Care

Michelin Defender LTX M/S ... hands down for ice and snow ... excessive amount of siping for constant traction. Have the on my 3500HD and run thousands of miles in Wyoming on ice and snow packed highways (just last week. Beware they are extremely noise on dry roads ... the price you pay for all of that siping.
