#2 of 226 P215/75R15 RBL Wrangler All Terrain Tires In Snow

These are the stock tires that came with my 06 wrangler x. Will they be pretty good in snow? I hate to buy snow tires if these will do the job?

Depends on where you are. Dry snow and wet snow are different beasts. Throw in mountains and it can get nasty.
We had stock tires on our Grand Cherokee and they were pathetic in the snow. After one year driving em though, we wore through them and put on All Terrains. They were MUCH better in the snow and clawed like there was no tomorrow. That includes drives up to Mammoth Mountain along Highway 395 and the grade from Bishop to Mammoth. Never needed a chain, except as required by the CHP.

I live in Connecticut but plan on going anywhere I can. As noted these are all Terrain Tires. I plan on going out when most folks are staying home. Its the best time to drive in the snow IMHO. Hell, I had an old VW with the engine in the back and I could do just about anywhere with it. I plan on driving on unplowed roads etc. I bought the Jeep for this reason. My friends have said I should be able to go just about anywhere with my stock tires but I wanted opinions from other Jeep owners. I don't think I will be driving in more than 10 to 12 in. of snow. I always thought that Jeeps could do the job. My wife is from Ft. Kent Maine and I plan on taking a trip there too.

I mssed the part about the AT. My bad
If they are NOT the GSA's you should be okay. The GSA tires are routinely known as "Get Stuck Anywheres" so if they are not wrapped around your wheels, you're probably fine.

I see nothing about them being GSA's. Would that be be on the tire? On the tires it just says Goodyear Wrangler AT/S.

Neither tire is anything special really, and I don't have personal experience of the AT/S, but I would suspect that it would do a better job in the snow than the GSA would.

I know the BFG 31"x10.50" AT tires are the crowd favorite of this forum but I want to know if I can go a little wider. After doing the conversion (as found on quadratec's website) I found a rough equivalent to a 31"x12.50" tire made by BFG... LT325/60R15. Here is a link to the website:
31" diameter will obviously fit, if it's getting recommended to stock wranglers all over this forum. What mods, if any, need to be done to accomodate the extra 2" of width in the tires I want? I know backspacing plays a large role, as told by Tom in another post to this forum this past spring. Will just a new rim with different backspacing do the trick? or will fenders need to be trimmed?

Jackson, I answered this question over there in the other forum (forget now which one it was) where you asked it.
Have you hugged your Jeep today?
OK, it was "DIY Mods for Under $500" where you asked the ame question and where I posted a reply.
