Winter Tires and Rims

Just bought my first Jeep. It's a 1989 YJ. It currently has 33s on it with some pretty awesome rims. I have been told the tires will not do well in the snow this winter. What has everyone else used for winter tires? Also I want to get different rims for the winter but not looking to pay a lot. Where should I look?

What tires do you have on it? Mud tires general dont do great in the ice, but do good in the snow.

In the winter Ive ran Swamper Iroks...not very good, Swamper TSL....horrable, Military GY MT/R's...decent, Military GY MT's...not great, GY MT/R's w/Kevlar....OMG I HATE THOSE TIRES WITH A PASSION....Swamper M16's....L....O....V...E!!!!!!!!!.... Cooper Discover STT...pretty good all around tire, my top choice for a all around DD/wheeling tire. Not so much for heavy rock crawling.

If your looking for just a strictly winter tire look at Falken AT or GY Duratrac.

Pro Comp has cheap black steel wheels for about $55 each thats about as cheap as you can go with out going on CL.

93 YJ I6 5spd
My YJ Build +1.5 inch SOA ,37 12.50 15R Swamper M16's, 5.22:1/2.97:1 Stak Tcase with 92 Crawl Ratio--------SOLD...
