Re: White Xmas

Went up to the local pass this last weekend to test out the Pirelli Scorpion Ice + Snow tires. They did great on hard pack, iced over snow and some previously tracked snow that was now iced over, had no problem turning out of the tracks etc... Made a few hard stops and the tires did great with minor ABS intervention. No fresh snow to tear around in but the tires did great. I was so confident on the tires I actually made a hard left turn and the tires and 4wd only allowed me a few inches of sliding before the tires grabbed again and pulled me through the turn...Plan to head up again during a day of fresh snow to do some skiing and test out the Overland and tires a bit more.

The forteras are TERRIBLE in deep fluffy snow .... but I make do with them. But honestly this truck is terrific in the snow, its the dam tires that suck.

I have hauled ass down a snowmobile only route (keep it on the DL) in my altitude with the fonteras... and made it through this horrendous chicago winter. I like them.

Re: White Xmas

The Forteras are not that bad in the snow, especially with Quadra-Drive II and snow mode. Obviously a snow rated AT or a dedicated snow tire will perform better, but if you are a decent driver the Forteras are fine (as Moose has shown). I also haven't had too much of a problem with the snow sticking to the wheel well liners, but some others have.

By the way, that sunset is amazing Moose. Nice Jeep as well.
