Winter Tires
I just ordered me some new winter tires for my Jeep.

Firestone Winterforce UV

I've been looking at those from the day I bought my Jeep and read some very good reviews on it. If I lived in the city then I would keep my OEM tires all year but since I live out in the sticks and my main roads hardly get plowed or salted and since most of the time my tires are the 1st foot print on the road way leading out to the main road, I think winter tires would be best. Plus I may not have to pop in my 4wd to get out of my steep icy drive way :thumbsup:

They should get here in a few days and I'm looking to have them mounted in 3-4 weeks along with having my moms winter tires mounted as well. I'm sure that I will do good this winter. I just know that now since I bought the tires, Michigan will be the only state that will not see any snow this year :lol:

What type of winter tires do you guys have.

Re: Winter Tires
haven't heard much about them. are you planning on running studs or not. i live in ohio and am running pirelli scorpion ATR's. have had them for 3 winters and they have done awesome. they were the #1 all-terrain tire when i bought them on tirerack. i think they might be #3 now. they were expensive though.

Re: Winter Tires
I always wanted winter tires and really couldn't afford them at the time that I had my Lincoln since I was replacing my all season tires once per year. Now I can so I went for it. Plus I really love the way my moms car was in the deep snow.

Re: Winter Tires
General grabber AT2 or silent armor. Both very good in dry,ice,deep and light snow.

Then wont be too bad for summer.

Re: Winter Tires
They came..... very quickly I may add. This is the 2nd time that I ordered tires from tirerack and both times have been great

Oh and I walked outside to wash the Jeep and just happen to find the tires on my door so no comments on my dirty Jeep :lol:
