Re: mud grips and snow
I always run mud tires in the winter up here in Canada, and they do just fine. AZPro4x hit the nail right on the head: Mud tires are great in snow but terrible on ice. You will do fine as long as your tires arent too worn and you know your limitations. The main thing is that you need to have some siping left on the tread in order to get any traction on ice. If your tires are worn and there is no siping left, then it is SCARY when you are driving on icy roads or in freezing rain. But if your tires still have lots of life left, just slow down and use 4wd (if you have it) and you will do OK.
