    soon to come...
    Have you found that you need winter tires vs the factory tires?
    could you really tell a difference? end up using 4wd less? less fishtailing?:confused:

    Stock for now
    My first winter season I swapped the stock dunlops for snowflake rated all terrains that were pricey. The tires did ok. This winter I decided (thanks to Hoosiertaco recommendation) running studded Firestone winterforce tires from Tirerack. Total cost shipped was less than $400. These tires were awesome, no fishtailing or minimal 4WD use plus on the black ice very planted.

    I ran the blizzaks on my tundra, those are a nice tire too. Great deal Demon

    I have the winterforce studded tire mounted on black steel rims and it's well worth the money. I was quite impressed this past winter with them on.
