My jeep came with MTZ's with 20% tread left. The few time I've gone out winter rock crawling, I've been thoroughly impressed with their traction. I've aired down to 9# without Beadlocks..,no problems.
Regarding DD...I can't say how much is tire vs jeep...in regards to winter road traction, ie short wheel base... I'm cautious on snow covered icy roads, because I have spun out. However, I did NOT air down... Only because no way to air back up. Now I have CO2 so if snow is coming I air down the night before to 15#...which makes a huge difference!
I'm currently trying to decide whether to stay with MTZ's or try something else that may be better. I'm not going to bring up the other tire I'm considering, Because it's too easy for everybody to get off topic and suggest a different tire versus your actual question.
I can't speak to the Dick Cepek tires, as ive never run them. I've never been impressed with their design. But at the same time every tire has its place where it works great and where it's out of its element.
Hope this helps!
