I have 33" Goodyear MT/R's and have only used it in one big snow storm and it did just fine.

Look for something with at least some siping in the treads. Without them you will have a hard time getting around on hard pack snow or ice.

MTRs and Toyo MTs are not snow tires.

i have seen some BFG A/T's go silly places in snow and up stupid hills on ice .

not the best winter tire and not really even a dedicated winter tire but it does get the job done

i personally am buying studded tires for my Cherokee . go down to a tire shop and let them sell if you want studded tire's or good dedicated winter tires . look for siping or sipable tires or studs if you need them or want them they might not be legal there . how bad are your winters?
