snow driving

I have a stock 1995 YJ, with snow tires. In great condition. Just wondering how deep I can drive it into the snow without getting it stuck or damaged. My tires are very good. I had wide tires on which I use in the other seasons.

That would be hard to answer. What kind and size of tires are you using now?
What kind of snow ? powder or wet?
Off road or street ?

Just make sure you have your cell phone, towing coverage or friends with jeeps\with winch that will show up when you call and a blanket for the wait..lol and go find out and have fun doing it !!

I have 235 75 R 15's. I actually thought it was supposed to have 225 70 R 15's, does that matter? My mechanic put them on, and he specializes in Jeeps. But I am usually doing on road driving, but up here we get feet and feet of snow. Looking to do some offroading. We get more powder than anything, usually too cold for wet snow.

They are better . Do you not want to lift your Jeep so you can go with some bigger and aggressive tires?
You could always have a spare set of tires with chains for when you know you are going to have lots of snow for a long time.

Cliffhanger - that's an impossible question. Too many variables. How icy? What's under the snow? How steep?

Go get stuck and find out. Bring along a friend, hot chocolate, a winch, a strap, blah blah blah, and have some fun.

Where do you live?
