    So I've got to start thinking of our impending Winter that will be upon us all too soon. What does the Illuminati say regarding snow tires? Are the KO2's good enough? Any new snow tire coming out for this year? As usual, TIA for any help and remember, Hitler said you have to answer!

    Aren't you putting this up for the winter in a climate controlled garage on jackstands under a car cover?

    Nokian makes a nice snow tire in the stock size. LT2 and it’s studdable

    Ha, ha. No, I donated 2.2 mil dollars to add on to the local hospital to build 2 hermetically sealed emergency rooms with the understanding the Raptor get's one for the winter.

    KO2 are very good in the snow, snowflake rated, narrow footprint is better in snow than wider when selecting winter tire.

    Think Goodyear Duratracs have very good reviews. No experience with them as Iam in texas but I research the hell out of tires before I buy new ones.
    The Duratrac always comes up as great snow/winter tire.

    For realsies though, I run Goodyear Duratracs year round and they have been very good in the snow. The K02's were pretty bad in the snow and only lasted like 20k miles total.

    Check out the falken AT3W’s. I don’t have them but have heard good things.

    So the KO2's seem pretty decent in the snow. But what was tested were the 265 version. Will I be at much of a disadvantage with the stock 315's? Hoping to use the stock tires as I already have 20's with tires and know I'd probably get pennies on the dollar to sell them.
