Winter Tires

I am looking for a set of winter tires to go on the factory 20's. Anybody know of a good snow traction tire that will fit?

i am the same boat. i can tell you what NOT to buy for packed snow! My toyo M/T's are awful in packed snow, you slip all over the place even in 4WD.

I've heard good things about the Goodyear Duratracs for snow and mud but dont know what size fits best on the stock 20's.

I'm also looking for a good winter/mud tire, was looking at 35x12.5x20 but may end up just going with stock size.

Any use open country a/t?

Is there even a dedicated winter tire available in a 20" that is a load range E? I was recommended 265/70/R17 for winter wheels and tires as there were a lot more winter tires available in this size compared to others in a load range E. I have Goodyear Wrangler AT on my truck and they seem to be decent in the light snow we've had so far.

I have about 75% tread left after 14k miles. Not scared to light em up once in a while either. The key is air pressure and rotation with A/T or mud tires
