I can't answer to the question of snow, but they seem fine in wet conditions. I don't think they are exceptionally noisy either. Pictures attached (hopefully)

Wheels make a huge difference. But so does weight of the truck. Along with that there are differences between tires, as well as the mold process will sometimes produce different results. In the US the tires almost always run small. The notable exeption is actually Interco, which run right on in some treads and under in others. Goodyear was the worst of all in the size department. A 37 measured 35in on a 10in wheel. It is actually kind of annoying but I think they do it just to stroke our egos. That way you can tell the womens your rollin on 35's when deep down you know your only sportin' 33's.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Do you have a tape at hand?
Just to know how taller they are (cm?)...

OT question:what corner protectors are those?
I can't see how they bolt on on the crossmember

The tires measure 34 inches under load, and inflated to ~35psi. My guess is that they have somewhere between 10-15k miles on them as well.


Edit: 86.4 cm

Wow, I ran out to measure my Goodyears after reading this thread and my 33X12.5 MTR's measure 31.5 in tall and 10 in wide on 15X10 steel rims. What a joke!

For what it's worth. Measure the circumfrence and do the math to find the diameter. It's different if the tire is off the truck with no load or on the truck and flat on the bottom.

That's odd, the SSR's normally run a little over size on diameter. The 12.50 is at the sidewall, not tread width IIRC.

the 10.75" I measured is the tread, and under normal circumstances, with no load, they are definitely just a tad over 31" tall
