guys, 235 is way too wide. Im running 205.75/15 bridgestone winterdueler's (ie blizzaks for trucks). Thay are insanely good. Tested other tires, even studded....no contest. And i run no weight in the rear. I go everywhere.
running stock wheels and tires here....today was the first snow and surprisingly i had no problem at all...i want to get some 18's but i guess i should wait until winter is over that would be no fun thou gh
I am running a 225 60 16 in the rear for better traction on my ZQ8 wheel, and just the stock tires in the front. They have a little more meat on them, and aren't so wide of a tire, plus they don't look to different then the fronts.
I swapped out my nw style ZQ8's for the winter....am running the LS swirl rims....205/75/15 all season fronts and 205/75/15 winter tires in the back.....2/4 drop.....posi and no weight......no problems yet.......still looks funny with them skinny little tires on......oh well....4 more months and the ZQ8's go back on!!!
Drivin the Sonoma till spring cause I can't ride the H-D in the snow.....Cozmo
I'm running 215/60 16 BFG winter slaloms (ice tires). Still a little wide for the best traction but look good on the Xtreme.. I also carry 2 sand bags in the back depending on the weather. Not only does it provide better weight and traction, if you get stuck or some one else gets stuck you got some sand you can throw down and easily drive it out.
Plus when I take off up north and the roads get real bad I just need to spend 15 minutes with the stud gun and I'm rockin'.
We ran a set of these but 175's a few years back on a rally car and were completly amazed. They were better then the blizzaks or nordiks/alpines
In the back i have 2 kelly 225/60 16s. They are much better than the old ones now on the front. 250lbs of sand also helps a lot in the UP of Michigan. I haven't gotten stuck or out of control yet this year.
