I live in Michigan and recently bought a GMC Sierra 1500. I’m looking to purchase a good set of snow tires, but I’m not sure which to go with—what are the best snow tires for the GMC Sierra 1500?

As it stands, the best snow tires for the GMC Sierra 1500 are the Bridgestone Blizzak™ DM-V2 winter tires, which start at approximately $325.00 and are designed for SUVs, CUVs, and light trucks
While the GMC Sierra 1500 is already well-suited to handling winter-weather conditions (especially if equipped with a 4-wheel drivetrain), a good set of snow tires is imperative for those looking to tackle deep snow and icy roads—and the Bridgestone Blizzak™ DM-V2 winter tires can do just that.
Thanks to Bridgestone’s patented multicell technology and the use of hydrophilic compounds, the Blizzak™ DM-V2 tires are capable of shedding water with ease, making it easier to brake on snowy or icy roads. These tires also feature enhanced ground contact and increased block edges, which help provide greater traction—and traction is key when it comes to reliable stopping power.
Of course, the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 winter tires aren’t your only option—a good runner-up in terms of traction and handling of snowy roads are the Cooper® Discoverer® Snow Claw® winter tires, which start at roughly $245.
As a testament to their abilities, the Cooper® Discoverer® Snow Claw® tires feature the three-peak mountain-and-snowflake symbol, which means they have been tested and deemed capable of handling even the most extreme winter weather conditions.
