I love my toyos, night and day difference from the crapyears. They do OK in the winter. Once the blower is on, I will be doing a summer/winter set up though.

Why aren't you considering continental dws? I love those tires. Great ride. Great traction.

I just put the Nitto Motivos on about 3 weeks ago and love them. Handled great in the rain, havent had a chance in the snow yet.

toyo proxes II or nitto motivo

Had the Motivos for a couple months now and they have handled great so far...not enough snow yet here in Chicago but the couple inches we've had, the tires have handled it with no problem...

My little brother used to run the Toyos on his Jeep...hated them in the rain and the snow. Got rid of them and now is running the Continental Extreme Contact DWS (same tire I put on my Jeep for the winter).
