    Default Best Snow Tires

    So I am putting a 6" lift on my 2008 Sierra and I was going to go with 35" Toyo m/t, but then I remembered that I am moving to Colorado next year and need a good snow tire.

    Do you guys have some recommendations or anecdotes about the best tires for the snow in 35"?
    Toyo a/t? terra grapplers? I'm thinking probably an A/T tire...?

    before my 6" lift and 35" Toyo M/T's, I ran the Toyo A/T's as well as on my Wife's 2001 suburban and they worked awesome in the snow! I'll have to let you know in a few months how these M/T's do but I have heard they are better than some of the M/T's out there.

I drove out of a parking lot filled with snow over my bumper in 2wd (just cuz I felt like tryin) with out a problem.. I have heard the same thing about the toyo MT and cooper STT in the snow also I think you should be fine with them

    Great loking, Great on the streets, and they aren't bad on the snow (just as good ratings as AT's)
