Large tires in the snow
Have any of you experimented with different width tires in the snow?
I can't tell for sure, but it seemed my older '91 Suburban with the factory width tires (but good mud tread) tires seem a bit more sure footed on the snow and ice than my new Suburban that has oversized tires.
It's nice to have the 4 wheel ABS in my new Burb, but I'm wondering if I should locate some stock rims and for winter specific driving.

Tires in snow are the total opposit of what u think would be right. So whatever ur thinking reverse it and you'll be fine. I'm into speaking in riddles today, sorry it's my home brew.:sign0011:
