    on my Ram, i went from 36x14.5 TSL Radials to 37" MTR's and it was like night and day difference.
    i would actually get traction in the snow as opposed to just sliding to stops and such.

    My previous 33's were BFG M/T's and unless I was in 4wheel I was just throwing snow around and going nowhere. My buddies Rubicon has the stock MTR's still and last winter it was a dream to Drive to a from work in. After that I was a firm believer in the greatness of the MTR. Now if only I could afford a set of them in 35's for my new running gear. :bow: :bow:

    My MT/R's do a thousand times better in the snow than my BFG MT's ever did. I was shocked at the substantial increase in traction even when there was just a dusting of snow.

    I rarely have to use 4wd in the white stuff even with an open rear diff. :D

    never had any, but from all that I have read, the MTR is good in pretty much all terrain save deep mud.
