    Hello everyone.. So I'm down to these two tires. I'm leaning heavily to the Falken's from research, reviews, and cost. I will do more street driving than off-roading but still, want to be prepared for both. I'm still trying to figure out the largest size I can get without installing a lift, spacer or avoiding rubbing on my 2014 JK. One person I spoke to was really impressed with the Duratrac's in the snow. I live in New York. But I have also heard that the Falken's perform in the snow just as well. Any last input that I might be overlooking will be appreciated. Thanks...

    These are not dedicated snow tires but the open lugs on the AT tires should be more effective than any all season passenger tires in deep snow. Max tires with little to no issue 32-33s

    They both have the Three Peak Mountain Snowflake rating so should do pretty good in the snow. KO2’s and Grabber ATX’s do as well, I don’t have any experience with any of these tires, but I’m researching that 3 mountain peak rating

    I am running the Wildpeak at3w on my XJ and so far so good, but only about 6K miles on them. Looking forward to snow this year though I would like to have my front driveshaft first.

    Thanks... I actually got the Wildpeaks.. I cant wait for the snow either... The price was right and the reviews and help from this forum was the selling point.
