    StarStarStarStarStar Great rear tire for snow

    by
    Product: Surly Lou 26 x 4.8" 120 tpi Folding Tire
    Ownership: a month
    Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

    Pros

    Great propulsion, holds the rear on-track in the corners

    Cons

    Only measures 4.5" wide mounted on my 80mm wheels

    Other Thoughts

    I replaced my stock Vee 4.5" Snowshoe tires with Bud and Lou. The Snowshoes worked great on dirt and reasonably well on snow and even some ice, but were not great in deep snow or holding the line in the corners. Bud and Lou excel here, a significant improvement over the Snowshoes. They are not perfect, but riding the same trails I noticed considerable better grab in the corners and improved climbing in loose snow, and able to handle deeper snow on the flats.

    I really noticed the difference on some little-used trails which had me plowing through 6" of loose snow and a wide variety of surface conditions.

    StarStarStarStarStar By far the best rear tire for snow

    Product: Surly Lou 26 x 4.8" 120 tpi Folding Tire
    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.
