Default PitBulls Rock in the snow.. Yah!

Purchased 3 sets of PitBull Rockers for myself my daughters 09 2dr and my son's 09 RAM. So far we've run through 3 snow storms and these are the best tires by far we have run. I thought the Duratracs worked well, bbut they won't keep up with the Pitbulls...

Thanks for the update Jeff, I've had my eye on those tires since you posted them actually. I believe they do come in 33" eh? I'd like to get them, just having a tough time looking for appropriate rims to put them on. The tire world is a mystery to me. I'd to get rims similar to yours, primarily black, if not entirely black, and put the 33" pitbull rockers on it.

How do you find them for the every day drive? Highway, etc.

ProComp has a good assortment of black alloy wheels at an affordable price. I suggest a 17" wheel as tires in that size are a good price.
I run 100klm of highway every day and think they run just fine. They are a heavy tire and need to be run around 26 psi. They do have a drone to them at highway speed which kinda sounds like a prop plane... Not real loud but its there.

I have 3 sets of stock Sahara wheels and tires in my garage as well as my set of ProComp 7089 and 35" Duratracs.
Stocks wheels and tires don't sell for much so, its not worth selling them. I've decided I'll keep them in case I want to put the Jeeps (we have 3) back to stock.

Above average on ice compared to other big tires I've run in winter. Better then the Duratracs (not studded) I ran last winter. For ice though, nothing will compare to an actual ice tire or studded Duratrac.
So far tread wear is good, but won't know for sure for awhile. So far only 3000klm on them. They balanced out pretty good.

We also put 35" Rockers on my son's 09 RAM before he drove back up to Slave Lake. He loves them.. Not that you guys got much snow up there this year anyway.
