Tires

Looking at some new 35" tires for the ol' girl. I want something good in snow and for rocky off-roading in the Colorado high country. Any suggestions? Should I go wide or not? I hear wide (like 12.5" isn't great in snow).

Wide isn't as good as skinny on road but it's better than skinny in deep snow. The idea is you want to sink down and grip the road and not float. But if it's too deep or no road underneath then floating isn't that bad.

For tires:
Cooper ST maxx
Cooper STT/toyo open country MT
Duratrac(unfortunately weak sidewall)
Toyo open country AT
No mud tire without sipes, hence only the cooper and toyo.

Hi,

On my 1993 Wrangler, I have 33x12.5. 15" rims. BFG. They are great on the beach but terrible in the snow. That was back in Maryland.

Today I'm South Florida and have a 2009 Wrangler X. I have 285/75/ R16. BFG. They are decent on the road, quiet, and excellent on the beach.

I'm strictly a beach person.
Pat

I found if you rotate the image before you download it to your image hosting site it works better than rotating after transferring the image.
