Should be here by Thursday and on the Jeep by Friday. Perfect timing too since we are supposed to get up to 12" of snow.

Swapped the Soft 8s back on the Jeep tonight, new tires go on first thing in the morning. And we are getting pounded with snow right now, so pumped.

I'll have some up tomorrow most likely. I don't have to work till 11 so I'll snap some when I get it back from the tire shop if I have time, then after work the lady and I are going snowboarding. Love living in the mountains.

The tires I bought are 33x12.50r15 Goodyear Duratracs.

Very good choice, I almost went with those last week but instead I got the mtr w/ kevlar. Realistically, I should of went with the duratracs since they wear a lot better.

Yeah I've wanted them for quite some time. And they are a lot better in the ice and hard packed snow than any MT is since they have so much siping. Perfect hybrid between AT and MT tire.

Agreed, they are better than the mtr when it comes to snow! And you should get double the tread life than the mtr
