Re: New Member needs tire adivce
If you need to drive a lot in severe winter weather, you might want to check out
Nokian factory studded Hakka 8's--with the caution that they are easily the noisiest studded tire I've ever driven on, but you have to do something truly stupid to spin out with them.
Other than that, I would caution you that unless you've driven with very aggressive
treads, you might find the noise a tad on the overkill side if you drive a lot on the highway. They look cool, but are the automotive equivalent of putting playing cards on your bike to make noise on the spokes.
The Nokian WRG series and Michelin MS LTX [now premier i believe] are two of the best all around highway, cold weather, rain, moderate snow, and moderate duty off road tires out there. The Cooper Discoverer A/TW aint too shabby either and is nicely siped.
Head for Canadian Tire website and plug in your size, as there are two common ones, and see what they have.
The more aggressive ones would be
Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac
Goodyear Wrangler MTR [pricey, likely overkill]
BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO series
BFGoodrich Mud Terrain
Hankook Dynapro MT
If those aren't aggressive enough, check out Mickey Thompson tires
