They don't look all that great.

Are you talking deep snow, or just hub deep, or driving on snow that is on pavement?

Three very different end-uses.

For deep snow. No. They aren't very aggressive and the tread has a very square edge on it. Might not float for crap. Also M/T tires are like several others made by Cooper, they run small. You are paying for a 35 but only getting a 33.7-34.1" tall tire.

For hub deep snow, they will probably be o.k. as long as it's not super slushy and cold so it turns to ice as soon as you slip a tire.

For snow on pavement. They might be o.k. but not as good as a heavily siped all terrain or mud tire.

Thanks for the reply. For snow depth was talking hub to deep snow use. Granted it only going to work so well for a 35" tire on a non beadlocked wheel. I have not had them up to the snow yet but looking forward to it if it ever snows this year. The tire also is bigger than the Copper STT Pro in the same size. Its wider as well. Its right a 13.1" wide.

its a 35" MT radial - it will perform along the same lines as every other 35" radial MT.

guy here in WA runs them on his Comanche, gets around just fine

I run them on my 85 Chevy k10, but only snow depth it sees is a few inches in the roadways from time to time. Works fine for that anyway...
