    Oki, to go with my 6" Procomp Lift i just bought some
    used 35/14.50/15 Thornbirds. How are these beasts in the snow? Would it be worth my while to leave my 33/12.50/15 BFGoodrich All Terrrains on for the winter season? Then go ahead in the spring and put the Thornebirds on?

    Man I wouldn't run a TB for anything. They are pretty much good for nothing except a street poser IMO. I would definetly hate to see theem in snow. I think would definetly be worth your wild to have a set of 1t's for winter and then go some Super Swampers for the rest of the time. There's my $.02 worth.

    Oh man, ask mudmover what he thinks of Thornbirds in the snow!! I would have to say "NO"!!! Those tires really aren't that great, I would stick with the BFG ATs for the snow definitely!

    RIDNHIGH-i had a set of TB's on my blazer 33x10.5x15 and they were killer in the snow and mud. I think the 14.5's are a little to wide for the snow though. And i had bfg ko's on my blazer last winter and got stuck with those on. The bfg's work well for dry trails and loose sand and gravel. This year i put a set of 33x12.50x16.5 big o xt's on and they are killer in the snow.
