Default Tires for winter.

They are calling for six inches tonight oh shnowww!!
But that's beside the points, sort of.
I don't know yet how these new m/t's will do in the fluffy stuffs, but they will probably suck.
My only other option is a set of used all terrains I got for free, not sure on the tread depth anymore.
So what do you guys think would do better in the snow? I like the idea of saving the m/ts some miles, but I hate how my truck looks with smaller tires and street tread.
This is also as long as the extra tires aren't dry rotted by now, I haven't looked at em since june.

So there really is no good answer here. I wish I could afford a set of all terrains or winter tires.
I almost need mud terrains for in the fields at work and hunting and stuff, I could use snow tires while in town and on the back roads and as soon as I hit the highway to head to the hospital the siped m/ts would get destroyed.
Sigh. Good thing I basically got these tires for 30 bucks

You could consider paying for 16.5" wheels, and running much cheaper tires like I do. If I didnt burn the back tires, I'd have full tread on them still also.

Is there anything cheap thats a 31-33? I want 33's for the looks. I want 31's for the mpg. Then again I have never ran 33's so the mileage may not be any different.
When it comes down to it, I could buy 5 sets of 31's on craigslist and pennswoods for the price of new 33's that I actually want.

Well it looks like I will get to test the mud tires a little today, nothing will be packed though its still too warm. Everything on the roads is slush. Horrible put you into a ditch need 4wd get 5mpg slush.
