As I just purchased new BFG Rugged terrains for my '10 WK limited, I'll be going to college next year and where I'm going, it snows 200 inches a year, therefore I'm seriously looking into getting some snow specific tires for when I go to school and for the winter, so I'm not wearing out these new rugged terrains. Any suggestions as to what to go with? And it is worth noting that I will be doing a fair amount of off-roading in my jeep as week as driving in the snow, so maybe I should stick with what I have? Or should I go with an aggressive off-road winter specific snow tire? I'm unsure of what to do. Any suggestions? And I'm running stock 245/65/17's if that helps.
Re: Winter Tires
They are a tad on the noisy side.
Pirelli, General, and Hankook have traditional studded tires that look like a direct ripoff of the Nokian tread pattern, the Hankook iPike is pretty good, but only a tad less noisy than the Hakka 7.
The Cooper Discoverer M+S is also studdable and notably quieter than the Nokian or Hankook.
If you don't need studs, I'd still suggest getting a decent severe winter tire with the snowflake symbol on it, as an of them will have better stopping and turning traction than a non-winter off road or an all season. The ones with the silica in the tread pattern are pretty good.
