Lots of good options as long as you stay with a 15" wheel. My 35" kevlars were killer in the snow. However, I don't think they are worth the price they are now.

We just put some 285x70r17 patagonia milestars on our 4runner and even being e rated they seem to work well. I'd bet the 35x12.5r15s would be a great snow tire.

I’d take the duratracs over the mtr/k and stt pro. Both of those I’ve hated in the snow. Baja claw ttc radial is the best small tire I’ve ran by a long ways. Interco truxus is the other favorite. The duratracs 315-16’s my buddy just tossed on his jk seem to be doing really well.

36" Iroks get my vote. They are the best in that size range for snow wheeling IMO.

Our snow is so different, at's just spin, mt's with flexible sidewalls are king.

That is the thing with snow. It’s all relative. The mtr’s snd stt pro just spin and have no bite especially on icier areas. The claws really put them to shame though and most other tires. I made a big rock ledge on open diffs 33” claws and couldn’t make it a couple years later with a front locker and 36” iroks though and I liked my iroks when it was snow/ice mix.

I’m on 37” milestar and they are pretty good. Mine flex well, soft compound, light weight so I can spin them up and save my light weight front end parts.

The interco trxus mt have been the best snow tire I came across. Not a highway tire though.

Add 300 bucks of Gripstuds and you got yourself a great combo. I wouldn’t think of going into the mountains now without studs

I used to go better than my buddy with 42 Iroks

Again, it just depends on the snow. In decent powder, the kind that easily makes a snow ball. The mtrís just had so much grip, it was impressive. However, I'm sure there are many other great 35 Radials that would do well also. 9 times out 10 a Radial beats bias.

If budget isn't a concern, I'd go with 35 Radial pit bulls.

What makes them so good? Side wall? Cause the tread looks like it would not be great

Whatever you do DO NOT get Toyo's for a snow tire. Several buddies run them in 35's and are a great tire but are horrible in the snow.

I'm running Pit Bull Rocker's in the 37", last winter we did several snow runs and they worked awesome. I was really impressed how well they worked.

no idea. the 35x12.5r15's are 3 ply sidewall. They just work and the pattern is stupid simple. They are light too!

We dont seem to get much of the light fluffy snow around my area so YMMV but the Trxus STS was best snow tire I have ran.

I just copied this from another thread I had commented in, I definitely recommend them anytime someone asks about snow tires.
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.
