The closest thing to snow we get here is ice on grass blades and on your windshield. But we got another problem worse than snow.......nails from all the new construction laying around the roads and fwys.


PS: I know x-terrains work good on snow........anyone else use these?

I had my BFG MT's siped. I think they only charge about $12.00/tire at Discount Tire (they did mine for a bit less 'cuz I had them siped when I bought them). I've used MTR's, Maxxis Big Horn, and BFG MT's un-siped, and so far this has been the best in the snow (we got dumped on about a week and a half ago). I was worried that the tire would be more vulnerable to damage off-road with the siping, but I did a trail a couple of weeks ago and the tread is still very intact. The only sipe the center blocks, so the tread block on the edge that might be more susceptible to damage retain their integrity.

I will put into the mix for a "snow" tire the AP tire with Green-diamonds from high-tec-retreading.com. ( http://high-tec-retreading.com ) We ran these on my wife's Nissan truck for a while, they were great. The little "diamonds" worked VERY well, not quite studs, but definately a major improvement over regular tires, and none of the annoying noise of studs.

I got your JEEP thing, now it hurts when I pee!!
