ok.. it comes with owning more than one vehicle... they all eventually need tires.. and because I live in the frozen tundra where the temp was 9 below zero a few days ago... we need good all season and snow tires. and good off road ones too.
it's rare to find one tires that can do all those things and do them well...
my '91 F-150 had old all season tires.. which were fine for summer, not so good for winter.. where we already have over 16 inches of snow on the ground.
welp, today i broke down and bought two front tires... went with the recommendation from the tire guy... glad I did too. (235/75/R15 for you tire nerds) :tongue:
Went with Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S (all terrain + Snow) these are mounted on the front of the truck.. dang if I don't have some serious stopping traction now, even in the deep as hell snow where I live. I have never owned a pair of tires that handle the snow so well.
Rear tires are dedicated Firestone studded snow tires, which I got last winter. So now my little truck kicks the snow's ass :tongue: and laughs at it.
Come spring I'll replace the rear all season's with another pair of the Yoko's.
I might even have to do some off roading now.
