REAL Winter tires (snowflake) in 37"

Hey!

Anyone find or know of Winter tires in 37" size? Or at least near 37"...

I mean real legal winter tires with the snowflake icon on the side...
Studdable or not.

Looks like I can't find any on the main manufacturer's websites...

Thanks!

Duratracs are the only real ones that come to my mind as well with the snowflake/mountain symbol and biggest they come is 35's. I know Canadian Tire has the Goodyear Territory exclusive to them and it has the snowflake/mountain symbol. You may get lucky with the sizing...but more than likely the biggest is also 35's in that line.

Thanks guys, I'll look them up...

Also FYI most tire companies start making some "All season" tires with the snowflake...
They are like the rain tires with big threads to evacuate the water on the side but built for snow...
Good option to run on the street in the summer and good for winter...

They are an all season all terrain tire.
I have them on my pickup and they are great on ice and snow.

Michelin and Hankook are the only ones I know that have the snowflake but they don't make anything bigger than 275/70

In Quebec we must have real legal winter tires with the snowflake icon starting fall/winter 2014.
If I buy some now, I want them to be "2014 proof"...

I doubt that the Sūrete or Municipal police would take a closer look for a snowflake symbol if there is a M/T tire installed but understand that it could cause complications with insurance in case of an accident.
I highly doubt that you will find an officially snow&Ice rated tire above 35".

That's my point... And also my own safety...
Mud Terrain are ok in snow but fock all on ice...

Exact. As of now I dont think it exists...
Excapt the Dunlop mentionned above but they're R22...

I know tire companies are starting to make "All season" tires but with the snowflake...
Same principle as rain tires... Specially for pickup truck with large tires...
Could be a good solution.

I know my Blizzak were incredible on ice but they were kinda small (for my Cherokee)...

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....rrain+T%2FA+KO

go to tirerack.com, look under specs for the AT or the description.....

NOTE: While most BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements (and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol), selected tires do not. Specific tires/sizes not meeting the industry's severe snow service requirements are identified with a "Not Rated For Severe Snow" notation on the Sizes & Pricing, as well as on Specs.

Related Information:
What is the mountain/snowflake symbol?

and you can google the Dunlop and they do make a 37 in an 18in dia tire..........

Ok, so apparently thew new owners have decided to hijack links to TireRack and redirect them to Autoguide. I'm sure TireRack will be please to hear about this restraint of trade.

How can they not be aware? They either did this on purpose or the site's been hit by a virus that only targets TireRack. And I've not heard of the latter.
