I had the AT KO's and they were siped and did awesome in the snow and wet roads. I then went to MTR Kevlar which even though they aren't siped on the outside, will be with next paycheck. I live on a side street where the plows like to forget about and driving on snow, ice, and slush, they do awesome. Once they get bald I'm most likely gonna get the 35's. Haven't found a better tire that will grip a wet road very well. I'm with Topher on the MTR.

And yes I know my Detroit locker is gonna fuck me in the snow lol.
They have yet to let me down. Been on ice snow sand and rocks and water crossings. Took me through eagle rock with no lockers.

I've never ran hankooks. Only bfg at 30s when I was stock. Then 31inch grabbers. And I was hooked.

There have been too many times where i was sure i would get stuck in the snow and on ice (in 2wd) but my hankooks just kept on pushing through and the few times i have actually needed 4wd (im talking about winter weather here) i felt like i could have gotten through just about anything. And im just talking about the ATM's i cant wait to upgrade to MT's once these wear out

My spare is a mt mtz lol. Mud tires aren't usually the greatest on ice. Thats why I like the grabbers. Not really a mud terrain tread but they still grip like it on the rocks.

Mickey Thompson is definitely my #2 pick. Tread patterns are freakin tough.

You're doing it wrong. haha

Im not saying grabbers are bad tires, I am just never buying or recommending anything but Hankooks again lol it's really alot of personal preference backed up with facts and stories so to each his own!

well my bad I thought u were directing that at me to try and keep the argument going, sorry for misunderstanding. But while we are on the subject the OP originally started asking about snow driving and what are generals known for being terrible at?

The op hasn't posted here in a few days you clowns.

Both of those tires are great but for snow/ice the difference is nominal if the driver knows how to drive. Get an Audi with studs or blizzaks and be done with it.

However, tires won't empower you to drive like a moron in snow. Bottom line. The stock tires will likely get you anywhere in this city when coupled with 4wd. If it won't then you honestly should begin to wonder if you should be out.
