We just traded in our 2004 Explorer a few years ahead of what we had planned. I have a set of factory Escape aluminum rims with TPMS sensors and Blizzak DM-V1 245/70R16 tires. The tires only have two seasons on them, with several more remaining. I was previously skeptical about the difference modern snow tires would make, but you won't believe how well your truck will stop with these on. In 4WD, it was nearly impossible to spin. Those two aspects gave my wife much more confidence in winter driving. So much, that I bought a set of 18's of the same variety for her new car.
