I use to run 35" B.F. Goodrich mud terrain KM2, they sucked in the snow. I now run 35" Pro Comp MT2 , what an improvement!

Tested a lot of tires on the truck towing snowmobile trailers all over the mountains of the west(US and Can). Best tire our group found is a BFG AT KO and then have it sipped. They last a long time and work excellent in all snow conditions. Last trip up we ran into an area with several big drifts and deep snow. No room to turn around and we need to go another mile to get to the parking area. Trucks with sled beds and smaller trailers. We had the huge 6 place trailer loaded with sled. Some guys unloaded sleds first and they all chained up. I hate chains. We unhooked spun the trailer and rehooked up. They were all bitching were we going to get stuck and they would have to pull us out, etc. Dodge Ram truck not a jeep. Low lock and in reverse we backed all the way through it and hardly spun a tire. Everyone was amazed. Many more deep snow stores to tell. Low noise on the road, great in snow- not the best in deep mud as they don't clean out like a MT. Sipping is 10 to 20 a tire but will make them last 20% longer too because the sipping makes them run cooler on the road and in they dry.

Stay away from Nitto Mud Grapplers. They absolutely suck in snow and ice. The tread lugs are too far apart to be effective. I switched over to the Goodyear MTRs and had the tight tread section siped. Massive improvement all around.

That being said, AT tires are typically better for DD and snow/ice. Siping helps in all cases.

I am sorry but MT don't work in the show. Maybe fresh heavy untracked they would be fine. As soon as it is hard packed and icy they blow and are dangerous. I had a brand new truck with them and got caught in a bad storm in Canada. I had to use 4wd most of the way and it was a death ride. I bought BFG AT KO's in Revelstoke, BC and had them sipped. On the way home the roads were actually worse! I only used 4wd on a couple of steep hills and it there was noting scary about the lack of traction. If you seen Highway to Hell on TV. Thats the rode!

looks like people prefer the duratracs over the bfg at ko's in the tirerack.com surveys. There also a little cheaper but only by 10 bucks each.

Lol no we went through the Manchester Creek trail system. Quite a bit of snow. Had a guy in an AMC Eagle trying to follow us for a little while. Watched some lady in a Toyota something get winched out and she offered to feed us dinner for watching lol.

Im running Hercules trail diggers. They perform very well on trail and rock,I do have to air mine down to 8 or 9 to really get good flex out of them. They are not great in ice I'm thinking of getting them siped to see if that helps at all. I can say I've run MTR-Ks and they are ok in ice and snow much more predictable traction than other MTs.

I know 2 guys who ran Pro Comp MT2's in the KOH Everyman race this year and both were really impressed with them. Neither had a flat and said they hooked up nice on the rocks. I was shocked myself. I think it's a good looking tire.

I love how the OP's original post was highjacked by every rock crawler and mud runner.
He asked about tires in the snow! I have not tried the Durat's but hear good things. I know the BFG AT work and sipping is the key for the snow.

I have Bfg ats and they have been great this winter as well as the last 3 and they still have around 50% tread left the only time I've actually slid was when I thought I saw a kid running between cars and slammed on the brakes. The road was patchy with ice since it was a back street.

GY Duratrac's They are the best all around tire I have found yet. This winter they are working great in all snow, slush and ice conditions. They do really good in all off road situations as well. I just adjust the air pressure to maximize their effectiveness when off road. Looking to get at least 45+k miles out of them based on the current wear rate.

I know I have asked you this before but the generals seem to have a really crappy tread pattern for the ice and snow? Big blocks kinda far apart and 0 siping at all. Just straight blocks. But you like them? And would the massive weight gain of my ramcharger over your (I'm assuming) Lj have anything to Do with how they handle? Being it is a 5000lb+ vehicle. And yes I know my Detroit locker is gonna fuck me in the snow lol.
