ToyotaJeep I think the key statement is the last line Willd420. Big and radial. That has been my experience for a long time. Just big and radial.....and not a Toyo LOL.

WILLD420 Personally, I am beginning to believe the old timers who say there is no perfect tire for snow. Every situation is different and the snow can change so much from hour to hour, that no tire can do it all.

Sometimes you need to float, sometimes you need to dig. Sometimes you need the tire to hold on to the snow for better traction and sometimes you need it to clean out so you can dig a trail.

I don't think you can go wrong with a good aggressive radial that is as big as you can fit under your rig.

I highly doubt it, I haven't put my hands on them yet. But Iirc, they have a lot of siping. I don't want to speed up them chunking out.

I'm trying to sell them if anyone is looking, they'd probably be a great snow tire for a rig on Toyotas or D44s.

This has been exactly what my buddies have experienced with iroks. Especially with a full bodied rig. Our snow wheeling there isnít much side hilling though.

I'm talking about old school 15" Iroks vs a 17" both same size tire like a 39" tall one. I've been a diehard 15" guy because I am older etc. but I'd like to run some 40" radials and those would be hard to find in 15's!

I've wheeled with both and they both do very well in the snow. honestly, I don't know if any one tire out performs the others in the radial 40" category (17" wheel) - they all do well.

wish they made a 40X14.5R17 Interco radial STS though

I saw the procomps on an lj with 5.3 and tons. They squat decent Iíd expect them to do just as well as my mtrkís. Owner said they wore really well and were quiet. He wasnít much of a snow wheeler so he couldnít compare them to others.

ToyotaJeep From what I recall back in the day, my buddy ran those that ere 44's. They were good floaters, and good on the flat and mild stuff. Not as good as Gumbo's (a mud tread tire) when things got a little ugly or off camber, hilly etc. This was on the same truck. He was a tire hoarder and had several different tire sets and he tried them all.

Overall at that time the Gumbo's did better where we were. Cepeks weren't that bad though.
03-24-2018 10:41 PM
YotaAtieToo Pretty disappointed in the cepecks. Just like I thought, they have shit for traction. Yes they air down amazing and float well. As long as you are on flat ground or going down hill

I couldn't go up hills that a Toyota on almost completely bald 39.5 iroks could.

Maybe it's the age, I don't know. They don't fell hard though.

350TacoZilla I've mainly just wheeled on friends farm and few local trails here in MD and OH when I lived out there, I also had STS's on my dd for a few winters. I have ran 33x12.50, 35x12.50 and 36x14.50 all on 16 rims.

I ran the 35 and 36 on a 97 tacoma reg cab 4cyl and the 33's on a 99 ram 2500 with snow plow.

They have their place. I still think a good radial is hard to best.

1998 called and they want their tires and wheels back

Looks awesome man, let us know how they work out. Sierras are supposed to get hammered with snow next week
