Another snow / tire question
Unfortunately, my 97 ZJ is only 2wd. As a result the thing is a PIG in the snow. Any time I get into something moderately thick or slick it spins the right rear wheel at a gagillion mph.
It currently has Bridgestone Dueler AT's on it that are ready to get replaced. I could probably go another 6k miles on them without them being dangerous, but driving in slick conditions is starting to really tick me off.
What I'm wondering is if I replace the tires with something with a more agressive tread and wheel diameter, will my traction improve? By more aggressive tread, I'm thinking something along the lines of a BFG A/T's.
What do you guys think, is my logic flawed? I know I can't do much about the fact that it is only 2WD, but can changing the tires help out considerably?
P.s. I know about the Blizzaks which have incredible traction, but I'm interested in making these year-round tires, and I don't like the fact that the compound in the Blizzaks can wear out so quickly. Plus, yowsa on the price!
