Wasn't allowed to go to the fall crawl so got these instead
« on: September 16, 2012, 09:50:58 AM »
So I was whipped into not going to to the fall crawl, but conned my way into these instead (17*35*12.5 Procomp Xtreeme).  Also, finished up my new ORO cross over steering by finally installing my steering stabilizer.  I have to say, for the price, the steering is SOLID and I could hit a tree with these things and not have to worry about it.

They do actually.  They work very well and much smoother/quiter than what I'm used to.  Lets not forget the pretty factor!

same tires i had on my chevy, got them on my truck now too. i like them a lot. I can't compare them to a whole lot of other tires by name but they are the best tires i've ever run in the snow. Well, aside from the hakkapellita IIs on the OMNI. but thats a different story.
can't vouch for them on a lighter truck like a jeep but i've never been more impressed with an all terrain tire in the snow than with those. nice buy.

You and I talkd about these almost a year ago and your praise is teh reason I went with them.  I travel too much for work to get a more aggressive tire anymore but didn't want an allterrain that would suck on teh trails (if I ever get back out).  so this is what i went with.  They are ultra quiet and I love the Pro-Comp muds I had so we'll see just how they stack up.

I'm on my 5th set of nokian snowtires, have to agree they are great tony :)     They really make my Subaru bearable in the snow.
