Trip Reports

New Years Day 2015 Hangover Run - January 1, 2015
Mother nature delivered some snow just in time to bring in 2015 snow wheeling the broncos. We covered a lot of ground in search of something new. There isn't a lot snow yet, but it was still a fun day out cruising the backcountry in the snow. Check out the full Trip Report on the forum.
Snow Wheeling - December 27, 2014
It's been a long wait, but we finally got some snow in the Cascades. After an extra long dry spell, we set out for a day snow wheeling. Since this was the first major accumulation of the season, there wasn't a lot of snow, but plenty to have some fun! Great day cruising the backcountry in the snow!

Hello, I am about to restore my SUV, its weight is about 1600kg and I plan to have fun in snow on 35x12,5 R15 tyres, just some relatively soft M/T tyres. (Or probably go up to 39x13.5 R15 tyres...)

Snow Wheeling

Low Pressure Air Gauges

When Snow Wheeling, airing down your tires is the most important thing you can do for improved traction and flotation in snow. That means you need an air gauge that reads low pressure from 1-5psi. We are on a quest to find a replacement for the Accutire MS-46B.
Siping Tires for Deep Snow

Why should I sipe my tires for deep snow wheeling? Siping is one of my three criteria for a deep snow tire. As you drive through the deep snow, the snow gets packed under your tire. The siping gives your tires hundreds of new biting edges. Additionally, the siping helps loosen the tire carcass allowing your tire to flex better when aired down.
