Well basicly like the title says... What do you guys think is the best tire for winter and ice? I have never had to buy winter tires before cuz this jeep is the first large non ABS vehicle I have owned...
Cooper also makes a very similar snow tire. The Cooper M+S. Very popular tire in my area here in Maine.
Oh, and when did a TJ become a "large" vehicle?

Interco Trxus's are magic in the snow, I live up in the sierra's and from December to March I'm driving in the snow, best tires hands down.

AT's suck when compared to a winter tire. I had some Blizzaks on a 2wd Ford Ranger. I dove up I-70 west of Denver during a huge storm, they had the 4wd and chains light flashing and I didn't slip a tire. There were 4wd suv's sliding around and wrecking into rock walls.

no, they're not. studded and heavily siped soft compond tires are great in snow. BFGs are good in the snow, not great. They're too hard a compound and after 1/2 tread they start to hydroplane and slide around on ice/snow. and I've been running them in Colorado for a few years now, and drive through blizzards to get to the ski country. BFG ATs are a great all around tire however, with a sidewall thats hard to bust.
