Sell my BFG MTs for ATs?

Well winter is coming up and I'm thinking about switching tires. I have 31" BFG MTs right now and am wondering how these do in the snow. From what I hear not to well. I work at a ski resort so I am in the snow alot. Yes I know I have a 2wd but I never had one problem last year, but my truck was not lifted with mud tires. How would the BFG AT do in the snow? The MTs I have now are sipped if that helps at all. Any ideas guys? Thanks

haha ya its this weird white stuff that falls from the sky. Its cold you probably wouldnt like it, :) Everytime I went to the mountain I just had my snowmobile in the back for traction but I dont have it anymore so it will be interesting this year. Lots of sandbags I guess.

MT's are not made for snow. I live in Michigan and all the sets of BFG AT's I have had have done great in the snow!

if the M/T's are sipped, then keep them....BUT if you have BFG A/T's keep them....they are real good in snow....i ran my 33" BFG A/T's in 30" of snow a couple years ago with no problems...

^^they will do fine because they are sipped.....my brothers '00 Cummins would have done fine in the snow with the MTZ's except for it was too front end heavy...

If you were closer to CT I'd say I'll trade you if they don't have to much wear on them. I've got brand new BFG A/T's and they do very very well in the snow. I don't even use 4wd in the winter really.
