On my 99 Ranger S/C 2WD, I run Michelin X-ice on my old 86 ranger rims with beauty rings and caps.
Night and day in handling, I would never run normal tires in winter again.

The 26's will be comming off real soon. Just waiting for a nice day were I can clean them up before I store them. Hopefully better weather this week.
Winter tires are the stock BFG Rugged trails on 18's but would love to get a set of 285/65R/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers though.

Truck goes to sleep, in the driveway, so I take off the 17" 7 lug custom rims / dueller H/Ls and put the 16" 7 lug OEM chrome steel and Michelin LTX's back on.

Both the Impala and Momma's Patriot have Bridgestone Blizzacks already mounted on steel rims.
My biggest fear is getting ass ended at a stop sign, because the blizzacks stop sooo quick.!!
Have been running these since they came out.....can't be beat and worth every penny.!!
