    I got new wheels and tires on my Raptor last week and today was the first time I got to try out the tires in the snow.

    315/70R17 (D load range) Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar tires on the new Method Roost wheels.

    I had the center rings Method provides powder coated neon orange, along with my front tow hooks.

    The MT/Rs are phenomenal in the snow. They don't grip laterally at slow speeds very well (i.e. cornering), but the overall straight line traction and breaking performance is among the best tires I've ever had in the snow.

    The only tires overall that I would say are better would be the Wrangler Duratracs I used to have, but those ended up being way too soft for offroading so I can't say I loved them.

    Anyway, here you go. I went out to get some snow shots this afternoon for you guys. Lots has been done to the Beast over the last year so feel free to tell me what you think.

    Powder coating accents sets off the black just right.
    What light bar is that?
