I was considering the Toyo Open Country MT 35's. It is my daily driver and I drive roughly 30 miles to work each day - mostly highway. How is the road noise and handling and have you driven in snow?
Road noise and handling are fine, only slight roughness I notice is when almost coming to a complete stop.
I had it in the snow when I first got it, but only for a little, it was good.
I can't see getting stuck.

Thank you for the feedback! I was mostly concerned about traction. Don’t want to slip & slide too much going to work in the snowstorms we get in W. Michigan. Great looking Jeep with those wheels!

Thanks..
I think the Jeep will do far better than most cars as far as traction and if it gets deep you will have no problem.
My wife's Jaguar F-Pace even on cr-ppy all-seasons is great out in the slippery stuff and I have went through 9 inches of snow with it no problem.
Have not had the Raptor out in the snow yet.

Thanks,

Fuel Mavericks in Matte Black 17x9 with Toyo Open Country MT 35x12.5s
Love your set up! Was thinking of getting the exact same rims for my Sahara. What is the offset on yours?

Thanks, they are the Matte Black Fuel Mavericks in 17x9 with 35x12.5 Toyo Open Country MTs, I do think the Toyo tires add very much to the look
