    I bought my jeep with Goodyear Wrangler 30x9.5R15LT, they look like they have good traction but some say their fine others say get skinny snow tires

    its like cameras you can get a disposable for $10 or a Nikon you can get a snow tire you can get a mud tire you can get a hi-performance tire you cant get all in one. how much traction do you want how much ware are you willing to give up for the traction.

    so what does that mean are these tires no good for the snow. I plow with all season tires on my F350 and add weight over the rear axle with no problems. Does the jeep need better traction because it is so light.

    Yes the jeep needs help because of its weight or lack there of. Your F350 is so heavy just about Any tire would do. How much plowing you going to do. if your going to make money at it go for the blizzak tires. If only your drive, a M+S tire would be OK.

    Stock OEM size was 27x8x15 the FUTURA'S are 30x9.5x15.

    Check out the Green Diamond tire site, if you want traction, these may just do the trick for you.

    I use Continental 4X4 Ice contact tires P23575R15 on my YJ. They work really well in the snow/ice.

    No Rep Here!

    Nope, I'm not a rep for them or for anyone else! Just a guy who took a shot and bought these tires in the hope of getting good traction. I plow my own place which has a really long driveway and sooner or later we get ice conditions here and I hope these tires will give me the traction I'm looking for while still giving a decent ride on the road. So far no complaints, I'm still waiting for snow, but I will say they seem to be very 'sticky' on the road when it's raining and during slushy conditions which we have had twice already. Hope this helps, and good luck in your search! :drinkup:
