Re: Winter tires - 33 x 9.5 m/s??
I cannot speak exactly to that tire, But the BFG AT tires are great in snow. I have a set on the wife's awd explorer. even with the 5.0 the only way I could get the tires to loose signifigant traction was to bind it hard in a corner or just floor it sitting still. Normal driving on snow they are better than my BFG MT tires. The signifigant weight diffrence could have some to do with that. It seems like the MT's throw and dig allot of snow where as the AT tires just seem to pack it down.
Only beef about the at tires is that they seem to have developed a hard spot and it causes alot of vibration, but she has 70,000_+ on them. Hard to believe, but I will probably buy her another set.
