My first Wrangker and I have a tire question.

I bought a 2011 Rubicon Unlimited and the prior owner mounted some wheels and tires on it.

I make trips to NC ski areas often during the winter and end up a lot of time driving in the snow. I've always gotten "snow tires" for my cars/SUV's but I'm hoping to avoid that in the JK.

The tires are currently BFG All Terrains in 285/70-17 with good thread. I've thought about buying a stock set of Rubi wheels and tires for snow, but would it be very helpful.

The stock Rubi Mud Terrains are abysmal in slushy stuff, the BFG's may or may not be severe snow rated. Check the sidewall for the mountain symbol, all the sizes of the new BFG KO2's AT are severe snow rated. So if it were mine I'd keep the BFG's.
