General Grabber Arctic LT studded tire for me
Just wondering if anyone has an opinion on which tire is best for mud/deep snow/ice for a 2015 Ford Transit? I am looking at the 225/75/16 size. I drive on paved roads, gravel roads, and new construction sites. I need a more aggressive tire than the stock tire that is on there.
I elected for the E rated General Grabber Arctic LT studded tire for my ride. Sized at 225-75-R16, it looks real nice. I'm planning on 4 wheel drive from Quadvan, but John has his hands full, so this winter we're powering thru with only the rear wheels and traction control.
This winter, Montana has been mostly snow packed roads and the tire is performing very well. I've only seen difficulty when there is 3"+ of new snow on inclined packed snow surface. When this happens, I may have to go forward and back to pack a small trail, then it's all good.
The slightly larger tire yields about 2-3 mph difference from the odometer based on a free I phone app I downloaded. Haven't checked the speed with another vehicle or quality GPS unit.
