    Anybody tried these tires? I found some in the size I've been looking for (real hard to find oddball size. They aren't pretty but look like they would work in snow. I am just a little leery because they aren't a name brand. I bought a set of Wild Country tires two years ago and they already need replacing, plus they were just not aggressive enough for plowing. To be honest I think the reason the wore out so fast was from getting stuck and spinning them so much. They probably would still be good if they were used on-road only. I am pretty hard on tires, so I don't expect a ton of miles out of them.
    Anyway, IIRC the Wild Country XRT II I bought I think they said was made by Cooper, some of the other Wild Country tires were supposed to be made by Goodyear.

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the TXR in particular. Not really looking for suggestions about other brands, thanks.
