So in the Thanksgiving preruns post I explained my Thanksgiving weekend. Well there were enough of us around on Saturday we decided to do a little run then as well. This was my first winter wheeling trip of any extent and a much different experience.

Awesome pictures John! That's some good looking fun! Did any particular tires do better than others? I'm always curious about that in snow.

I dont think anyone in particular had any better or worse results with their tires. Nothing noteworthy at least. I know I would be very happy with the Bighorns I have if they werent wearing so fast.

Nice shots. Looks like some nice rigs!

My last trip to Badlands w the JKs in snow it was easy to see the worst snow tire (km2) but its hard to differentiate the ones that worked.
I hate to advocate weird chemicals, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone...but
they've always worked for me.
