I am north of you a bit and I have the all season. I had absolutely no problems in the snow or ice with those tires. The snow mode actually makes a huge difference in driveabilty in adverse conditions. You should not have any issues with the all seasons.

Re: snow

Thanks Kbench! One more question. They sand the roads here. Do you have the jeep mud flaps on your SRT8? I am more concerned that those wide tires are going to kick up road dirt and sand rocks on the paint behind the tires....

Any suggestions?

This guy was having problems with just the tire dressing after washing his car:

I am afraid of what will happen on a road with sand/calcium and rocks.

Unfortunately, there are no mudflaps for out jeeps unless you use the rubber universal ones (which look like crap). They are going to kick up the road dirt and sand rocks. I cringe ever time I get to a sanded corner. The last time I was at the dealership we test fitted a bunch of different style mud flaps and there was nothing that would work for the width of the tires.

Re: snow

i bought my snow tires locally.Hankook ipike rw11,265-50-20.They are .3% different than the original overal diameter.payed 1406.00 dollars,balanced and installed.

for 2500.00 dollars i think it is a good deal.

Re: snow

I did well in Chicago last winter in mine, I was in about 6 to 8 in at worse and felt comfortable in snow mode which was noticeably more aggressive with keeping the car in line

Re: snow

Everyone else have the clear, almost 3M like patches behind your rear wheels? Took me awhile to notice them.
