Re: 20's on Overland

Stock 20s with all season tires will not be the safest during "the worst snow storms of the season" in the mountains. Those of us that do a lot of mountain driving in snow get a second set of wheels with snow tires, and swap the wheels out twice a year. HUGE difference in traction. One accident will cost more than a second set of wheels. If you really don't want to get a second set of wheels, good all-terrain tires will meet you half way, but they still won't have the super soft rubber you will find if you go into Firestone and push on the treads on a Blizzak (that will give you great traction on ice at 0 degrees).
