To retrieve one tire stranded up on the property in the middle of winter, I had to venture up my driveway which I may also add seemed to have more snow than any other area around here. Not that it was a whole lot of snow, but everywhere else we looked there was hardly any snow. 40% tread swampers and open diffs weren't the best combination for this type of snow. When we finally got about to where the tire was at, there was a loud SNAP and then clunk-clunk-clunk from the front end. The way it acted, it feels like I sheared a couple teeth off the ring gear, but I'm not sure what happened yet. Could have been from those few times I had to get big runs at the hills and the bumps were bad enough I had a front tire bounce up off the ground and land hard. It was rough enough the axles I had sitting on a pallet in the back cracked through the boards. Either way, after 2 hours and a broken front end, I now have my complete set of matched tires in one place.
