    What are the best Tires for Snow in Minnesota and Wyoming, would they be BFG Mud Terrain, MT Claws, SS Boggers, or what other good tire is there for snow. I am looking at 33" tires for 15" rims.

    That all depends. What kinda snow do you get out there? And is there a state mandate for traction devices? I know certain states have "Traction laws", and some tires don't require that you use them.

    I run 33 x 9.5 BFG AT's and I love them. Great traction, and height from 33's , but they don't "wander" in the slush like a wide tire would. off-road in snow you won't be able to float on top, but I've pushed through some deep stuff before.

    Zig,

    If you really spend a lot of time driving in snow and ice, wide tires are not the best choice. This is my personal opinion, but based upon my experience a tall narrow tire is by far the best choice for snow and ice. With respect to M/T or A/T the A/T is better choice.

    Peterson's 4Wheel and Offroad just did a review of the Yokohama Geolander M/T in the snow last month. It did very well and also did very well on an earlier dry test session. Beat the Claw and the Wrangler MT/R. I keep thinking about them. Cheap price too.

    I had very good luck with my 32" BFG AT KO's in the snow and ice last year. Considered getting some BFG MT's but was convinced otherwise.
