Re: A 1200 mile round trip to North Carolina with a cool "adventure" story

Did you find rocks, pieces of metal, or anything inside the Jeep to explain the breaking of the glass?

I am satisfied with my Jeep's Nokian Rotiiva AT tires. Next time, I'll consider Nokian WR G3...

Re: Nokian Rotiva AT 265/60/18 10,000 mile update

Nokian calls its Rotiiva and WRG3 tires "all-weather," rather than all-season because the Rotiiva and WRG3 are acceptable in states and provinces that require winter tires. All-season tires, which...

Re: Question about Goodyear DuraTrac

Re: Advantage of 20" rims over 18"?

Re: Snow!! Not so good...

That's good news. Of course, all-season tires are designed for two inches of snow or so. Beyond that depth, snow tires are called for.
