That's pretty amazing, especially that hill, given that tire size and considering you had to stop in that snow to grab your video camera, and continue going from a standstill.

Thanks a lot! The only modification I had then, was the tires. No lift, no extra clearance. 12 psi in those tires was incredible. I was very impressed.

Yeah, i might be a florida boy now, but i grew up in Quebec, driving ATVs and front wheel drive cars in the snow, so i know a thing or two about challenging winter conditions.

I have been running mine for around a year now and they are just like the op's review overall an excellent MT but I heard they no longer make them. Just what is left in stock.

Thank you for the heads up! I'm gonna probably stick with Duratrecs since they are nearly identical and Duratrecs get awesome reviews.

Digging this one up from the grave...

So OP you still liking the Safaris? Have you worn them out in the 4 years since the tread started??

How about those of you who have run both Safari TSR's and Duratracs--any thoughts? There was a Safari vs. Duratrac thread but it was shortlived.

I'm running the Toyo M55's at the moment, but will have to outfit the truck come spring. Was looking at the Kelly's cause I need something good, reliable and priced well, as I also have to outfit the wife's Rav4 this spring, so flow will be tight for 2 sets of rubber!

I have TSR 265/75 16 and really like them. I have had Duratracks as well. Both are good tires. The TSR's have 13K on them and still look new. Work great in snow and air down well for sand or off road.

Cool thanks-- around here I can get the TSR's for about $40 bucks a tire cheaper.

Here's a decent picture of the TSR's I had mounted on Tuesday. 265/75R16 with a 2.5" (or so) lift.

I absolutely love these tires so far. They ride very smoothly, make just a low hum, and have excellent snow/ice traction.

They're like a cheaper duratrac, except safaris don't suck and blow sidewalks every 5 minutes
