I will say that my family has always run dedicated snow tires on everything we've ever had...my dad took me out when I was 16 and showed me how 4wd can get you in trouble. We took FWD, RWD, 4WD vehicles (cars trucks suvs)to the school parking lot in the snow...sharp turns, stopping, fish tailing and how to correct, then on the road late at night. The front wheel snow tired car out performed the heavy duty 2wd truck with weight in it by a mile, and the non snow tired SUV, then we put the snows on the SUV, big difference.
I've tried to make the jeep slide(in sport mode traction control off) and tried to get the tail out of sorts. While I can a little, it's very stable, brakes well, and is under control. My 4wd dually doesn't do as well and I have 1k lbs of weight in the bed, and Toyo AT 2s. My wife feels better and more confident she can avoid the morons in their street tire equipped SUVs going 25 with a little snow on the ground...like they forget winter happens every year in NE Ohio. Even when she had blizzaks on her Altima coupe, she got around fine, it just plowed deep snow and filled the lower air dam. Just my experience, but they make them for a reason, the tread is designed to grip in cold temps and remain pliable. Yes, they don't handle as well and wear faster when it's warmer, but that's why there are other tires...and my summers last longer because I'm not running them in the winter, and get about 3-4 years out of the snows. How much is a fender bender vs the cost of some snow tires, or how much do you value your families lives?
Pics of our new diesel, with winter rims off our hemi we traded, 255/70/18 blizzaks we had on our wrangler...no rubbing, when these wear out getting 265/60
If you were born here, you're American, no colors, no races...know your heritage and be proud of it, but act like an American, or go to the nearest coast or border...AND LEAVE!!
