I've never heard anything bad about them except how fast the wear. I'm going to run them when my current TSL's go pop.

Where did you hear that? Over on Pirate they are the super badass [bleep] for the deep snow?

Maybe you meant street type snow?

Re: Super Swamper IROKS any good?

For the woods, it isn't really the tread that makes you go through dasnow. It's contact area. There are some oddballs, like Boggers, that blow donkeys in the snow because they'll let you slide sideways and when that doesn't happen they'll dig until you hit dirt. I haven't seen anything do better in the snow than TSL SXs or plain-jane TSLs. Ground Hawgs seem to hold their own though...

But I was talking about a guy that spun out about a month and a half ago in front of my house and got stuck in the snow bank. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Some club members tried to go snow/ice/water/mud wheeling today and it was a failure. Apparently Marc got tired of winching people (30,000 PTO winch with 250' of cable) and they eventually gave up. We get enough snow to keep people out of the woods. I'm talking snowmobiles get stuck in the woods around here. I don't think IROKs will do any better.

Theres a reason there called I-ROCKS! They have a certain purpose in life. There nice and soft and sticky and flexy. As soon as the 42's come out this month I'm ordering a set.
