    Been a while since I posted, been distracted with life and the little cars and such. I used to have a hitchgate (Wilco), hated it. The pin was just terrible to deal with for me. Plus I don’t have oversized tires so I can keep a spare underneath so with the gate I was carrying a second spare, which I did like. Especially in the early pandemic, I utilized any excuse to stay away from people. Anyway I bought it used and sold it for the same amount, and have since been trying to figure out a way to hold my trash backpack. Voila, harbor freight bike rack. $40 well spent and can still bring bikes too. Honestly I don’t hate it.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    Good for snow, not as good as the Michelins for ice.

    For your elevation and colder winters and deep snow, I would expect they would be good. I have them on stock 16 inch black steel rims.

    This pic is early spring deep wet snow, so they struggled in this but then I was driving on deeply rutted tracks, or no track at all .

    They were good in mid winter city driving on deep snow when it was below zero. No tires really any good in deep wet snow. Colder = better grip. Warmer = hold on to your horses and pray.

    Much better than my KO2 e rated tires in snow, which are not really good at all. On ice those are like skates.

    I did a thing.

    Installed a Course Motorsport phone Mount with the Magsafe head for wireless charging. I used a USB Converter that I tapped in to the Cigarette lighter outlet for power.

    Links to everything I used. I am not affiliated with any of these sellers nor make any money for sharing the links. I just know someone will ask for links and I might was will give it now then later.

    Drove her to the dealer for the 1 year birthday celebration. Celebrated with a fresh filter and a big drink of 0W20.
    Came home and put the skid access panel back on and now she's resting peacefully in the garage.
    Our life is so exciting.

    Can't go wrong with any Nokian as they're designed for winter conditions. I have studded Nokian Hakka's and the truck is an actual tank when 4WD is engaged in either snow or ice.

    I saw a Nokian AT tire at one of their demo events in Copper Mountain, but I can't find any information about it on their website. Of course it won't have the same street cred (trail cred?) as the bigger names but I did wonder if it might be a magic all-around tire.

    It's an opinion, but I don't believe in an "all-around" tire. In winter, I want to get where I'm going with no drama, so I won't trust an AT tire. However, some people don't want a dedicated winter set and for those I recommend the Falken Wildpeak series.

    A friend runs the A/3TW on his 3rd gen and it does alright on plowed and sanded city streets as long as he's careful. It also does well on fire roads, on the highway, in wet conditions, etc.; it's a good all-around tire. However, the A/3TW doesn't excel at solving any one problem as you have to make compromises in the compound and tread pattern in order to span the range of environments the tire operates in. As I mentioned in an earlier post, you can't run dedicated winters in the summer because the compound is exceptionally soft relative to an AT tire. The compound needs to be soft in order to maintain it's pliability in freezing temperatures which allows you to maintain traction. AT tires need a compound that won't disintegrate at 80°F but also won't become rock solid at 20°F. What you get is a tire that isn't pliable enough to grip ice but also won't melt away in the summer. Additionally, a tread pattern that is designed for rock crawling won't hold on ice as that pattern is built around a large, flat surface area. On ice, you want really small nooks and crannies that flex and grip the ice. Look at the tread pattern of the Hakka 10 vs. the A/3TW and it becomes quickly evident which one will win the grip battle.

    So an AT tire can get the job done given the right conditions. But if you're traversing unplowed mountain passes at night with snow falling, I'm going to rely on a dedicated winter set because I want to get home safely.

    Agreed. I have been using dedicated snow tires on my vehicles for several years. Something that has not been mentioned is the decrease in stopping distance with snow tires due to the softer compound and complex tread pattern.

    You put that armrest storage in backwards.
    Does the armrest lid close fine with it like that?
    I can kind of see how it makes more sense in that position you placed it though.

    It took me awhile to learn how to post photos, and hell at my age, memory is not what it used to be, every time I post a photo it's like the first time all over again! :angrygirl:
