    Get the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac A/T's.... I live in chicago and needed a good snow/ice tire also - these tires are actually rated for snow/ice w/ that snow flake symbol on the wheel - the same one dedicated winter tires have

    Homertaco grill, Light Racing UCA's, 2.8" front lift (5100's at 0.85 setting and Eibach springs) 2" AAL with rear 5100's, Wet Okole seat covers fr/ bk. 17 x 9 Incubus Crusher wheels w/ 4.5" backspacing. 30% tinted front windows.
    I also recommend the silent armours. Don't have them on the taco...their on the 4runner, and they are awesome! Way better tire IMHO then the BF's. I got them at Fountain Tire 4 for the price of 3.

    i had bf goodrich land terrains on my truck last winter. we dont see much snow here, just a few inches here & there. but those tires lasted me a long time, & did really good in the 2-3"'s of snow we had this past winter. they r not too expensive, & not too noisy!

    Never had a problem with Canadian snow with my Bridgestone Dueler ATs. Last for at least 60k miles with no noticable noise increase on the highway. Toyos are also great, thats what Im getting next.:canada:

    Toyo AT, BFG AT, GY Silent armors, Bridgestone Revos, or GY Duratracs for a little more agressive look.
