I am running General Grabber UHP's in 275/45/20. Great tire for the money - they are advertised as a summer tire, but I have been up to Tahoe when a good amount of snow was coming down, not enough for chains, but for a "summer" tire, they were very good in the snow. My TBSS is AWD, so that could account for the added stability in the slush ;)

Gotcha. I lived in Chicago for about 20 years, up until 2004 when I moved the family to sunny Cali - the Chicago winters there have always been pretty brutal and am glad I don't have to deal with it anymore ;).

Anyways, when I was in Chicago, with my trusty '98 Isuzu Rodeo and awesome '01 Chevy Blazer ZR2, I had them spec'd out with Yokohama Geolander H/T-S and Parada Spec-X, respectively. Both tires were extremely capable in the snow, and throw either truck in 4WD, nothing but a 10-foot snow embankment would've stopped them. Well, maybe NOT a 10-foot wall of snow, but you get my point! :D

So my advice is to check out the Yoko's and see if they appeal.
