Default Stock goodyear's - ummm, I hate em'

Need a reco here...

14" of snow here in NJ, friend calls me up she is stuck w/ here front wheel drive Plymouth. Me being a nice guy, I'm going to go help - NOPE! I got stuck in 4 Lock in my driveway - embarrassing. And now points for being the night in shining armor.

Knowing these stock tires suck, what is a good replacement. Occasional off-road, nothing crazy, but need to get around in the snow a bit. I heard cooper's were a good way to go, suggestions?

I've run BFGoodrich All Terrains . I even talked my boss into putting a set of them on my plow truck at work . They work well .

In addition to the BFG's, the Coopers are another good choice. I run them, haven't got stuck yet. I was fine in the 2" of snow today, I'm expecting 8" of snow when I wake up tomorrow morning.... Can't wait!

Smart move would be AT's for most of the year and skinny snow tires for winter use. The tires that work well for off-roading (mud, etc) don't work well in snow because they float on top of it.

Thanks guys!! I'm going to go with the coopers - found them for 190 shipped, got a buddy that's gonna mount them for free (I'm gonna toss him the old wranglers w 18k on em'). Otherwise I would just burn them at some random woods party for revenge.
