i got a great deal on some studded winter coopers this year - can't wait to throw them on, but they're probably going to be really noisy, even compared with the crappy stock contis. i think that i have to wait until the end of oct to try them. has anyone tried these out?

I picked up some cheapo steelies so i don't trash the factory rims in the snow/sand/salt as well.

I did not have any problem with the stock STONES last winter...But I do hate running the rims in the winter....It makes me cringe...I usually fo out in the drive with a bucket of hot water and get all of the salt off of the rims

So that's why you don't have any brakes for the first couple of stops. ;)

I`m like Willy, I wash my wheels and underneath almost daily and park her in the garage but damn, I will end up with pitted rims, I know that for sure.:mad:

studded tires, etc for winter?

just get a beat up truck to drive in the winter, definitely cheaper than the snow tires and extra rims (even steelies)

that's what i use my jeep for.

Doesn't look like you could run these in the snow?
They do look like a quiet ride. :)
cheers
Falkens are a lousy tire when it comes to noise, they have decent ride for about 10,000 miles and then after that they become loud.

You would think it would be just the opposite, as the tread wears down they should get quieter. I have no experience with Falkens so this is good info to have.
