    Took first trip to Tahoe in the 4Runner, not knowing that there was a snow storm that shut down hwy 80 for hours. Also my first time driving in the snow:driving:FUN! Watched a couple people slide into snowbanks and pulled a few out, to include dragging a 2wd Taco a mile down some back road that got dumped on. I couldn't see 5ft in front, pretty awesome first snow drive. Did some sledding in the McDonalds Parking lot while we waited. I'm waiting on Santa to bring me snow boarding gear! Not a bad place to be stuck. We were about to call it quits and spend the night in Truckee but saw that the road was clear and drove back down to the rain.

    They're 35x12.50 Pitbull Rockers. They did real well in the snow, though I have no previous experience. I didn't get stuck!
