Did do a slushy snow covered road ride to the grocery store. Very wet snow but had the road covered. They handled that without an issue even on the little bypass road I use that I would never had tried in a car. Most cars were barely moving but I was able to get up to a little speed around 45 on the main stretch of road. Of course didn't try that on the back roads. Never slipped once. I see in the morning when the freezing over night temps hit that mess how it does. Unfortunately I need to get out on it.

They look soo awesome!.. hope to get a new tire soon too.. The raised letter would be a deal breaker for me..

I am going to have my stock wheels reversed just for time being

you just have the lift, no spacers...

No, not really.

Well, not Georgia mud.

They did great on the ice, at least for me. I got lucky though, one truck lost it coming down a hill I was going up but he went into the ditch right before he got to me. These tires went right up it though with no problem, I would have stopped for him but a cop was behind me at the time.

Stranded motorist or 'cop', it's never a good idea to stop and talk to strangers.

It doesn't matter who they claim to be.

Looks sick! Just remember that driving with a different size tire is hard on the drive train!

I love the new look these tires give the Jeep alone with the bumper and winch it is drawing on lookers. I went to a restaurant for diner and was sitting at a window were I could see my jeep. There were four couples that came over just to look at it. Not many vehicles get that attention. It's a Jeep thing and I love owning one.

The law of 4-way stops: drivers wave the coolest vehicle through first.
Once you're lifted, have good tires, bumper and winch, you'll usually be universally waved-through first. Often by Porsches.
