  1. I'd get 2 Winter Treads for the back and two of the others for the front. Cooper has a Discoverer M+S Winter tread.

    Go get a set of Bridgestone Dueler AT REVOs. A set of 31"s cost me almost $600. That was over 30k ago. Great tire, good traction, does well in the snow, and seem to be holding up great.

    about stepping up tire size. Can create a host of problems. If you step up a couple of inches, consider regearing. and lifting.

    I had discoverers for my Dakota. Winter tread pattern. Big mistake. LOL. I have good year wranglers now......I think they are the HT's or something. DEEP tread, and good cross pattern. Have had no problems on all of this snow. Then again.......they wre about 600 for the set :(

    I have used cooper tires for many years on my Rangers, and I highly reccomend them.
     
  10. For good cheap tires get a set of liberators at walmart. We run them on all of our light duty trucks and vans and for the money, they are the best.

  11. I'd never buy another set of Goodyear Wranglers or even take a free set. :( They become a very rough ride at 25,000 miles and had to be rebalanced every 6000 mile but they still cupped. :( Lousy on wet pavement after 20,000miles. Had them on a 2000 Explorer and a 2001 Sport Trac.

    i really don't think you can go wrong with the bridgestones.when i bought my new jeep it had goodyears on it and the 1st thing i did was switch the bridgestones from my cj onto the wrangler.when it's time for a new set i'm gonna stick with them.
     
  13. I have the Wranglers on Jeep Grand Cherokee & the Bridgestone Duelers on Explorer & the Explorer goes alot better in the snow, I am constantly having to put the Jeep in 4WD.

    Get a pair of BF Goodrich Longtrails. Sell at both Walmart and SAM's club. JD Power best light truck tire. Don't leave home without em'.

    Serious,
     
  16. I want something agressive. Like a mud terain or maybe an A/T Just not BFG A/T's. had them on my other ranger and were terrible
     
  17. I had BFG's all terain on the tahoe for 70k. As long as you rotate and balance them they should last a long time!

    I have the wrangler's on my Ranger and have loved them so far. Last winter, I never had trouble with traction in the snow. I don't have a 4 wheel drive and was new to rear wheel last winter. I did take it out and play in the snow a little, but I never had trouble with them. I am not sure how many miles are on them, but I know I am close to needing new ones. I am also looking into other tires, so I will look at some of the ones you guys have mentioned! :)
