only experience I've had with coopers are the RWL tires for the cars. I've had the geolander H/T's on my F150, and have been pretty well happy with them. pretty decent wet/snow traction, but no experience with the heavy snowfalls you guys in the midwest get. (most mine have seen here is about 6"). my local amazon have them for about $160 each in my truck's 17" size

Firestone Winterforce are a great snow tire, not real noisy and grip wet or dry.
Never use studs as I cant stand the noise on dry pavement and you cant run them year round here.
But, as they are a snow rated tire, they are a softer compound and will wear faster than an "all season" tire.
Ran them for years on my trucks and Grand Cherokee.
Cheaped out and ran them year 'round and got 2 years out of them, but I don't drive anywhere near the miles you put on.
Ended up with a spare set of rims so all I have to do is swap them out spring and fall, and not pay $100 at the tire store..

The mileage you’re describing (if you go to work every day like every red blooded American should), then I’m a Cooper Weathermaster fan with studs. By the time spring comes around you can de-stud them, which is a good time. Then need only two for the following winter. There is nothing better I’ve found in the snow than Cooper weather masters.

Is this for the ‘burb that took 200 pages to find a bad cam?
Nope that pile is long gone Ive got
a 76 f250 now

I do but I don't want their tires if I can help it. Mainly out of spite.
Life is too short to be spiteful of your employer - either find another one or get over it. If you don't, then they win because the only one that's unhappy is you.

Depends on your particular stance on religion/afterlife etc.

Slow roast could refer to much more than a coffee bean

That’s because you’re not 50 yet.

Life is too short dude, whether you 30, 50, or 80 years old.

Be happy and ……… be happy - f anyone without the same opinion.
