Man, these would look really nice under my soon-to-be-lifted 110. I just bought a 40mm lift (Britpart springs, OME shocks) and I'm thinking my current 235/85 BFG ATs are going to look pretty puny under the truck after I get the lift on. Going to tires of this size might give me the slight increase in gearing I want, and look better too. Then again, maybe I'd be better going slightly larger even than this.

Oh well. After spending $500 (FIVE HUNDRED) dollars on basically replacing my starter battery yesterday, I don't have any money left for toys. Oh yeah, there's the baby due in a week and half... Plus, as someone else stated, getting them across the border to Canada likely would make this endeavour a non-starter.

I'm surprised that someone above said these tires are working better for him in the snow than his ATs. I'm very impressed with my ATs in the snow and have a hard time imagining unsiped MTs being better. In deep snow, yeah, but not in icy, slushy stuff.

- Andrew.

I posted about their performance in snow, and that's primarily in slush/ice. I was prepared to drive 300 miles down and back to get them siped, but decided to give them a chance. They really work well.

Yeah, yours is the post to which I was referring. I'm surprised they worked so well, but that's good news for me when the time comes to replace my ATs.

My brother has MTs on his GMC and says they're awful in the snow. I'm very happy with my BFG AT KOs on all snow conditions except deep snow a couple degrees below freezing where I really need lugs or chains. Once the ATs spin just a tiny bit on the snow, it turns to 4 ice patches under the tyres and all the lockers in the world won't move the thing.

Thanks again for the info, and it sounds like the snow performance of the new MTs might be better than the old ones. I did watch their promo video and they mention mud, rocks, sand, and all sorts of conditions but not snow.
