Ok so I have enough to buy only one set of tires for both playing this fall and daily driving all winter. I was wondering what your opinions were on various MTs as snow tires. I am currently looking at BFG MTs cause I can get them for like $160 at Costco (price is always a factor) but I wouldn't mind forking out a little more for something better. Big-O MTs seem popular and I was thinking that the smaller lugs might be better on the ice. Has anyone ran MTRs in the winter? They are way more then I was looking to spend but if there is any significant advantage in the winter over other tires I might consider it. The other thing is that I am looking at the posibility of going to 33s rather then 31s in which case the BFGs have an advantage in that I would get the 10" width rather then a 12.5" for better traction on the ice.

Any opinions? Are there any other tires that you recomend?

if you are just talking about snow and ice the 10" are going to be way better then the 12.5"

Yeah the Big-O warranty is sweet too, but I am not really looking for an all round tire. I am sorta looking for a good MT that isn't going to get me killed in the winter... :rolleyes:

Thats what I was thinking. Since Costco has no warranty to speek of either, I was thinking of even sipping the center lugs on a set of BFGs.....

BFG's are a killer tire as far as I'm concerned. Just FYI, my MT/R's stick well in wet conditions, though I've never tried them in ICE. I have a feeling they're going to be awesome in the snow :D

I think the key to not getting killed is to just slow down. Remember, if that guy behind you is being a total ******* and riding your tail, all you've gotta do is kick it into 4low and reverse at the next stop sign :) Prelude Pancakes!
