What winter tires and wheels?

Hi Guys,
What a great forum for jeep lovers. I'm on my third jeep, I had a 80 CJ5 with 31's on it and got stuck in the snow all the time. During the winter, I decided to buy regular stock jeep tires and rims, and I never got stuck, I could even go 90 mph. With the 31's I had to shift into 3rd to go 40 mph if I was headed into a headwind. Now here is my question, I just purchased a cherry 06 jeep wrangler with stock 30's, with AT tires. Do I need to downsize my tires and rims for winter or are my 30's just fine for winter snow? just like I did with my cj5 years ago?

I love the forum, and my new black 06 jeep wrangler! Can't wait for next summer to go topless.

Downsizing you tires isn't going to affect your winter traction, the tread on your tire is. AT's are usually pretty good in the snow. Which ones do you have?
