I like how you can't even form a basic sentence or spell 1st grade level words correctly, but somehow are qualified to tell anyone on here anything.
Never said I was the authority on snow wheelin. I just find it funny that in every thread, there is always someone posting their own rig trying to get attention. Can't take a little criticism? Might want to find a new forum or go back to fagbook.

This thread about the BEST tires for deep snow, not "hey my 40" Boggers can chew threw snow that's half as deep as they are tall"

Who cares about how much snow it is?
It is a great video that demonstrates how well these tires clean out in the snow at a fairly low wheel speed.

Any tire at that speed cleans out like that.... also cleaning out is not necessarily a good thing in the snow... snow grips snow. By your definition you should be running boggers too

Ding ding ding, mud tires need to clean out. Snow tires, packed with snow (not ice) is a good thing.

So no digging is required with deep snow?
The snow sticking to snow thing makes sense to me but just makes me think the dual pattern of the mtr is even more beneficial
From Personal experience I haven't seen any other mud terrain or any real non all terrain do as good as properly aired Mtrs in the snow/ice

Boggers are good for one thing, mud. I'm Personally not a fan of them
And that speed is what exactly mr smart ass? It's actually pretty slow

Our snow out here is more damp, heavier and packs better than the snow I saw back your way. Out here we wheel on anything from inches to over 20' of depth. Conditions vary, but most never want to be digging. I usually fund that philosophy with old school keepers or inexperienced folks, with their beds filled with snow.

Here when it gets deep it usually stays soft with a hard crust on top that you have to break through
We like 20" idk what I would do with 20' haha it would definitely change the technique

When I lived on the upper peninsula we wound up with a 13' drift against the house after a blizzard and had to tunnel out. Different ball games for sure.

they're made by toyo ... heavy, stiff, and hard rubber; the reasons they're tough and do well in the rocks, not necessarily good in the snow. there's better options for a snow tire in the 40" size

with that said I've still be scouring craigslist for a cheap set of 38x15.5R15 nitto mud grapplers ... on some 15x14 wheels I think they'd be floaters

Beat me to it! Just watched that video and was on my way here to post it.

Amazon has 40" MG's for $450 shipped.... tempted to say the least, but don't miss all the road noise.

Damn! I am slacking. interesting way he grooved them. must be for all the side hilling they do. we had a day/night like that about a month ago too, the snow was horrible and got worse as the day went on. thankfully I was one of the smart ones who turned around and I live far enough away from where we were, that I didn't have to run gas back up to them the next day (a Monday). It took my buddy almost all of Monday to reach them then most of Monday evening to turn around and follow their tracks back out

The last snow wheeling trip I was on I passed 2 3rd gen toyota pickups with 41.5 pitbulls that were struggling gain any ground which surprised the hell out of me since there rigs were obviously far lighter than my heavy as hell 4runner I'm am/running grooved non sticky 43'' sx's at 2psi. They sucked in the snow horribly bad until I grooved 10 pounds off them

I was being sarcastic. I wouldn't run Pitbulls if they where free!
