Hi guys, any suggestions concerning winter tire for this beast. I live in Quebec and with our winters it is a must. I did some research with no results.
Please help.
Thanks

If you are planning on using the factory 18" rims and keeping the same size tire then there are only 2 tire choices available.. the Continentals it comes with or the GoodYear SRA's that come on the Titan.. if you have the Off-Road Package with the 17's then you may have a few more choices but not much..

I do think BF Goodrich makes the BFG AT KO 18" in a slightly wider but lower low-profile AT tire.

If you replace the rims with bigger or smaller diameter you may open up a new realm of possibilities.

If you have the 17's, tirerack.com sells the BFG AT and MT's in a 285/70/17 for about $150 to $180 a piece....Goodyear also sells the MT-R (which is an excellent choice) for about $200/piece....if you have the 18's though, I don't know what else to suggest really...good luck

Dave.

Thanks for the feedback -- do you consider them a large improvement over the Continentals? What did you pay per tire? Thanks

I paid 1249 usd delivered in Quebec (tirer rack). The are a great improvement over the continental, they provide a better handling and less tangling on highway. Of course the also consume more gas as they are very agressive. Great on snow and ice. It is the tire to have for winter conditions.

Definitely not cheap!! I'm going to see if I can find them -- and depending on the cost...may get a set just for the winter. Put them on for 3 months...and then put the Continentals back on for the rest of the year. I'm not convinced I'll get much snow traction from these Continentals.

Sorry , I did pay 1249 can, is was 1024usd on my onvoice. I will also take them off for summer. BUt trust me, with the continental it is ok for winter. With the BF it's awesome.

Man!! These things are hard to find. Couldn't get them locally at all - nor could they order them and get them here any time soon. I had to use tirerack.com also -- and got their last set -- coming out of Nevada -- so cost me extra in shipping :eek: -- plus I need them to get here by Mon or Tues at the latest -- so I can get them on before I head out to Chicago for Christmas (I'm in MD). Will let you guys know what I think of them -- hopefully I'll hit some serious snow so I can test them out -- All you Ford Escorts on the highway with your bald skinny tires driving 5mph because it's flurrying... -- get in the slow lane 'cause I'm coming through!!!! :D

You will love them, I ad them on for 3 weeks now. With severe snow conditions all around Quebec. They are amazing. Can't wait to hear your comments.

Well -- just picked up the Armada with her new tires installed. The guy at the dealer said they were hell to get on!! Not sure why... Anyway -- they look great -- a buddy of mine dropped me off and he owns a Titan...now he wants a set. They're much quieter than I was expecting as well -- which is a good thing!!

Should get to test them in the snow -- maybe as soon as tomorrow -- will be driving from Maryland to Chicago -- and the weather's not looking good along that path.... wish me luck!!
