It’s my first time navigating winter weather with my pickup after moving to Rochester, and I’m thinking I may need to get some snow tires. What are the best snow tires for a Ram 2500?

Winter in Rochester may certainly call for some winter tires for your Ram!
Here are some of the best snow tires for a Ram 2500 as recommended by fellow Ram drivers:
  • Bridgestone Blizzak LT: Specifically designed for large trucks like the Ram 2500, these winter tires offer best-in-class winter traction for heavier vehicles
  • BFGoodrich All-Terrain K02: While these are all-terrain tires, their excellent severe snow traction performance has earned them the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) rating
  • Goodyear Ultra Grip WRT LT This winter pickup tire uses a specialized ice tread to provide secure traction in icy conditions and in a foot or so of snow
If you don’t really feel like swapping out your tires twice a year, you can also equip your Ram 2500 with all-season tires designed for winter driving instead. Here are some additional all-season tire recommendations for winter driving in a pickup:
  • Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar
  • Continental TerrainContact AT
No matter what snow tires you decide to put on your 2500, make sure to consult your manual to get the correct size before purchasing. While costs will vary depending on the brand, you can expect to spend about $200 per tire. Luckily, this isn’t as hefty an ongoing expense as your Ram 2500 car insurance costs, though—you can generally expect snow tires to last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.
