Where's the fun in that? I get the "other idiots" comment but too much fun to find an open patch of untouched snow, put it in 4H, floor it, and turn the wheel. The Jeep is made for this, it knows what to do.Usually if it snows I just stay home. But sometimes you end up driving in it.
I always crawl. It’s the other idiots on the road that scare me more.
My hero complex has gotten stronger with all these movies also! I love wheeling in the snow and pulling people out also. I have a 4 acre pasture that is looking rough right now because everytime it snows I have to do donuts on the way home from work.Where's the fun in that?

I also always carry a pair of tow straps from offroading, so I've pulled 5 stuck cars out of the snow so far this winter. Helps to feed my hero complex
Yep the KO2s, thanks for the info jeepers!Which tire are you running?
In my experience, tire brand/type matters more than width. I've run some that were downright scary and wanted to hydroplane in a heartbeat, and others that are rock solid in foul weather.
Tires like the BFG KO2, General ATX, etc. that don't have circumferential channels to allow water to evacuate quickly are particularly bad. Tires with higher voids and open channels that can push water out fast tend to stay planted on the road better, especially if they have siping.
Yes indeed.. For snow, you'd really want to have narrow tires, believe it or not. The same could be said, to a lesser degree, for water on the highway when dealing with hydroplaning, though weight can overcome that to some degree better on water, vs snow.When driving in the snow today hit some slushy spots and Jeep started to float on top of slush to one direction. Is this normal for wider tires mine being 35s 12.50. Bit scary was going same speed as everyone else. First Jeep here..
Tractor tires are tall so that the body of the tractor doesn't smash all of your crops, and as far as thin, they're only thin compared to the body of the tractor. They're still about 2 feet wide.That is why I think thin tires are better. They're lighter, usually cheaper, and they're less likely to hydroplane. People say they're not the best for deep snow or mud, but if that was the case then why are tractor tires almost always super tall and thin?
