    What tires for deep snow?

    Trying to figure out what tire would be best for my 08 rubicon.

    Looking at 35" size. The jeep is my driver in winter but i'm not concerned about hard pack/ice traction.

    My main goal is a tire that is good in deep snow for ice fishing and bush trails. Not the mountain deep snow but the 2ft+ of snow we might get on the lakes in the praries.
    Pretty open area so its basically a hit or miss whether the snow is crusty on top or not.

    It currently has 255/75/17 hankook mts and they arnt going to cut it even with it being locked front and rear.

    Im kind of torn between the km2 and mtr kevlars. Anyone have experience with these tires in deep snow? What other tire should I consider? I know duratracs are supposed to be good in snow but the tread is tight and im sure mud tire would do better in the deep.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the input. I had 33x12.5 baja claws on my old grand cherokee. Didnt get out much with it but it was open front and rear.

    They were the old style baja claw radial. Not sure how the new ttc model compares, the tread looks like it might be a little tighter?

    Have you had bad experience with the km2?

    Pitbull Radial Rocker is awesome in the deep snow.

    My old ladies tacoma had km2's and I didn't think they were anything special. Good show truck summer tire I wouldn't run them in the winter unless you grooved them. We sold them and got the new Kevlar mtr's, much better

    good luck finding mtr-k's when i was looking last month i was told 4-6 week waiting period for mtr-k. i ended up buying thunderer mt from a place in west kelowna got the set of 4 for 900 bucks everything in. there first run was into about 5 ft maybe more of snow and they preformed beautifully. i run a 06 tj open front and rear. i was able to pull up on the deep side of my stuck locked buddy and drive away cutting a path out for him without any issues.

    I like the Toyo M/T Open Country, I have them on my '07 Dodge Diesel and they work get and they have lasted 3yrs and the truck gets driven on the logging roads and hwy lots, I also have a set on my IH Scout II. When I went looking at tire spec's I was surprised at just how many tires don't measure up to the size that they are advertised at, for example a 37" actually like a 35" and so on. The 37's I have on the Scout are a true 37

    I liked my old BFG A/T's but the tire of choice here among a lot of wheelers is IROC's, I just got Toyo m/t's on one truck and A/T II's on the other, haven't had a chance to truly test either.

    The Toyo M/T I had them installed new in October 2010 and the are just about done now but are still legal and the truck sees its far share of miles on and off road. They weren't as loud as I thought they might be
