    Best Jeep Tires for Winter and Snow

    Living in Indiana, we got 14 inches of snow last winter. My current Goodyear duratracs did great, just looking for something different, any suggestions?

    Ill be running Duratracs (Edit: in the winter months) when I move back to Ohio. No doubt it is one of the best tires for what we get

    Personally I feel the Blizzaks are the best snow tire. I had a set on my JK and I still have a set for the wife's SUV. Awesome for trips up I-70 in CO in the winter time.

    Duratracs hands down. They handled the crazy Canadian winter we had this year better than any tire I've ever ran. Plus they are ice rated.👌 and Canadian approved eh

    Yea where I live we got a total of 118 inches of snow last winter. There was always over a foot of snow and ice everywhere. So I really put them through a rigorous test this winter.

    Honestly, as long as you stick with an All-Terrain, you should be fine. It helps to find a tire with a fair amount of siping. If you like the aggressive look of the Duratrac, Mickey Thompson and Cooper have options in the same class. Mud-Terrains will give you great traction in the mud and on the rocks, but with little to no siping, they won't be the best in the snow and ice.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
