I put on a set of Nokian Nordman 5 SUV winter tires on mine and will put the stock ones back on her in April-May. These work great in the deep snow, slush and ice. I thought mine looked good, but damn I love the looks of your even better!

Those are nice tires as well but I wanted a more aggressive look. So far I'm reallllly happy with the look. Also my tire shop threw in free tire rotations and flat fixing for the life of the tires. So that's another plus for me.

I live in Ontario were our roads this time of year are covered in snow. Accidents are extremely common. I had winter tires and winter rims but due to tire places being booked up I havent got them on the vehicle yet. So driving with all wheel drive sometimes, it helps. But I still mostly drive 2 wheel drive and have only got stuck once and it was yesterday and 100% my fault. I drove into a semi plowed area beside 2 snow banks when I got home to plow my drive way. I plowed my driveway with my ATV than went to move my vehicle into my driveway and replow the spot on the street where my vehicle was. I put the Jeep into 4 wheel drive snow. This was a mistake. While backing up some tires spun while others didnt and it caused me to crawl sideways into the snow bank (the one caused by the street plow) I was hung up going back and forth for a while until I was able to push over to the right enough to punch it straight back. To do this I put the vehicle in 4wheel drive sand mode where the wheels give equal power to each wheel. worked like a charm. After I was free and parked in my driveway I plowed that area good and cleared both banks. I've slid a couple times while driving due to snow packed tired and snow on the road but it has never put me or the vehicle in harms way.. and in that instance I was driving faster than I should have been. Luckily I slid into a empty parking lot where I pretended to take my phone out and make a call... Yeah I tried to play it off like I meant to go off the road.. no big deal..

Considered the K02's but they are much heaver then stock, that is why I went with the Yohohama Geolandar A/T-S. I was afraid that the K02 were to heavy and would cause problems down the line. Yoho's are close to weight of stock and so far have been outstanding in deep snow and ice.
