Best Spartan winter tune

I have been thinking about this for a while. Im currently running the 125 tune now that its cold. Does anyone have any other input as to the best winter tune? I didn't have any problems with the 210 but it broke loose too easy.
With the 125 i find it will build 20-30 psi but not really go anywhere, and I do not have any surging. It is rather strange.
Maybe spartan can make me a winter tune?

Ill try the 175. I do not have anything over the 250. i would like to run that or try the 275 but I am afraid of breaking something. Besides I don't have the best tires right now.
Maybe come spring ill buy the 275 but I am even afraid of that.

the amount of back pressure they make on the lower tunes (in normal driving) compared to the high tunes shocked me, almost want to jump to a higher tune simply for that.
currently on 125 also

thanks guys, I think I will try the 175 this week because I may have a 600 mile round trip coming up. It is amazing of how different the truck acts between 32* and say 20*F.

What do you mean difference in temperature? I'm also in Ohio, but I just run mine on the mild. Should I be running a different one?

Well, it runs rather normal around 32*F but once it drops lower than that it will have a tendency to build boost but not really gain any rpm or speed like it should. Such as if you were going to accelerate from a stop.
I also drop to a lower tune to reduce the power and sensitivity of the throttle which I find helps to prevent me from breaking traction. Especially with the tires that i have because they are pretty worn.
