    Those tires will provide some good flotation in the snow, but you will want to gear down some because of the extra weight. I was running 18/72 gearing back when I had my Big Joes, but you may want to go even lower.
    It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

    You will go wayyyyy slow, and risk your entire driveline. and in the snow causing drag even more! i ran these a while back in the street and it was super slow and would cause so much stress on everything. i wouldn't run them really, i'd go with some 40 series if you really want big tires that aren't too bad, or with some moabs xl since they are much lighter and thinner. so they cut through the snow but still give you the effect as the kongs.

    Yes, don't buy it.. i broke my drive shafts and shredded a few spur gears.. the tires are too heavy, it's not the size it's more the weight of the jumbo kongs in particular. I would go with moabs xl or 40 series tires instead.

    When you get big tires like that its beter to not run fully stock.Get stronger motors,driveshafts/cvds & stronger servo(s).But they will stress youre drivetrain and stock motors good.My cousin went through 2 sets of diffs running these.They are more for show if you don't have tougher parts & powerful system.Running stock if just a money pit.Heres some tires that would give you good clearance.Moabsxl are the lighest big tire you can get probly..But other 2 will last longer(thick treads).They use the same rims as the moab xl.
