    Deep snow is just like mud to them put light snow is like ice they act like skis more than tires. If you know how to drive in snow you will be fine though.

    I've got the 38x11x16 boggers. Love them in the snow. As long as it is deep. Stay away from ice.

    I plan on finding out. Do you mean really deep snow or driving on the street? Some of the snow runs last year involved driving on roads with over 10 feet of snow. If I aired down the 40" TSL's to 4 pounds, It worked well. I am hoping the wider boggers will do better.

    The difference with the boggers is less rubber on the surface so on ice or a street with a couple of inches is going to be a little slippery, and even if you air down it's not that much of a difference, but in deep snow, anything from half a foot to any thickness, is great with the boggers.
    Anyway what ever tire you have, when on a street always go slow and be carefull, it's not just the tires but the height, weight and all the changes that we make to those trucks that makes them so capable off road and makes them quircky on the road. Don't be a statistic, be carefull. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
