Looks like those tires love the snow. How do you like their on-road performance (ride, noise, etc.)?

Re: Back from a 4x4 trip in snow

Hi again,
The tires were great in the snow but on the road they are a little bit noisy, nothing really loud but still noisy compared to the 20 inch Michelins I use in town and for daily driving.
Here are a few more pics and as soon as I get a chance I'll try and upload a few more videos.
Rgds.

Re: Back from a 4x4 trip in snow

Nice videos.

How well did the door seals do keeping water out on the water crossing when it was up over the lower doors?

The air intake on the GC appears to be more than high enough for that run (about as high as it can get without a snorkel, and the water trap really helps keep overflow out), but I'm curious as to how water tight the cabin is when the level gets well up on to the door surfaces.

Hi again...not a single drop inside the cabin, very nice seal, on our way back in that same river we spent some time in the river as the truck ahead of us had some trouble climbing out..and it was all good and dry.
Rgds.
Here is a video from a different trip (summer time), you can see water running quite fast and again cabin was completely dry all the time...see minute 1:08 aprox. and you can actually see the water kind of pushing me.
