Tire question for you NW guys

I'm looking for something in 35/12.50/17.

What are you guys running in the snow, sand?

MTR-K, KM2, Toyo?

They've all got great things about them, just curious to see what guys around here are using. Thanks...I can't wait to get up around the South Sound area with you guys hopefully!

I'm running the new MTR's in 37's. I've had no problems in up to 2 feet of snow. I haven't run them in sand so no comment on that.

I've got 35 Toyo Muds on 17 inch rims and 12.5 wide. They work great in the mud, snow and sand. (Before you look at my location and call BS Northern AZ does get snow too)

I understand the Jeep thing

Running MTR's (non-k) 37x12.5x17. Good all around tire. Snow requires about 8psi to see good traction.

2008 Silver 4dr Rubi - 4.5" Rubicon Express Longarm, 37x13.5x17 Toyo M/T's, Dick Cepek DC-1(blk) 17x9, Prorock 44, ARB frt locker, RCV's (frt), Superior Chromoly Axle shafts (rear), Prosteer ball joints, 5.38 Yukon gears, RR Hydro-Assist, etc, etc, etc......
