those tires would be good in light (4" or less) snow, and on icy/snowpacked roads. all the sipes on them. make them even better on ice by having them siped extra.

I don't think bf Goodrich tires are made in china yet. gotta keep an eye on that. I wont put Chinese parts on anything that has anything to do with safety. I despise using Chinese parts for ANYTHING really, but sometimes, theres no other choice.

Rarely do we get more than 4" at least before the roads get graded. Packed snow and ice is much more likely. The non pro version is .40 cheaper and fewer sips. I'll pay the extra.

i run toyo open country a/t tires myself. they are tough, great traction, and great longevity. im about 12k on these tires, and they aren't even CLOSE to 1/2 wear on them. barely more than 25% worn away probably? and if you knew the trailers/weight they have hauled, that's not complainable!!!
