Snow tires mandatory with a 22?

    I just put it an order for a Sno-Way 22 plow and install. This is for my 1999 Toyota 4 Runner. It has a V6 with 4WD.

    Also has fairly new all season tires (Michelin), and my question is will those tires be good enough for plowing a driveway and a 300 foot one lane dirt road, or am I going to have to look at buying a set of studded snow tires as well?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    You should be fine. With a LSD rear diff (most toyotas have em) and 4WD you should experience little if any traction problems. Most all terrains are sipped well.

    do the job right and it shouldn't be a problem. Some ballest in the back,a little ice melt on the drive before it snows to keep the snow from locking up and you'll be good to go.
