StarStarStarStarStar By far the best rear tire for snow

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

By far the best rear tire for snow due to its tall knobs and wide tread. Excellent traction and stability. Not too heavy for its size and construction.

Cons

Little pricey but worth it.

Other Thoughts

I switched to this tire from Vee Rubber Snowshoe and only used it for snow (snowmobile and hiker/skier packed trails, sometimes a few inches of fresh snow on top) riding. The difference was night and day. With about 4PSI, it is able to handle even some free terrain settled snowpack. From couple of rides on firm terrain I would not recommend it for that as it is an overkill. May be good on mud, though.

StarStarStarStarStar Lou and Bud of Surley

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

This tire is made for the snow. I will probably never run another tire on my rear wheel when on snow. Paired with the Surly Bud up front I am a happy fat biker.

Cons

It doesn't roll as well on dirt. A little more drag then a less aggressive tread pattern. I put my 4 inch Husker Du set back on for the dirt riding.

Other Thoughts

Fatties for life!!
