I'm probably a year out but it doesn't hurt to look into these things.
Scorpion ice & snow. This tire was designed for ice and snow but it is rated as excellent traction in dry, wet, ice and snow. The three season tires that came on the jeep were great handling tires, but they were run-flats, heavy, stiff and I could see after just 1800 miles those tires were not going to last long. The ice and snow tire is a non run-flat and made a huge improvement in ride quality while losing very little in the handling department. After better than 5K miles, I am seeing very little wear on these tires. You can see some info on them here:
