Not to Hi-jack , but I wanted to know if anybody has ever had luck running Mickey Baha Claws for snow tires...

I have a set of Radial 33"s and was considering running them on my Crewcab, and thought Siping would help to prevent the usually choppy or Cupping wear the Claws are know for ??

Any feed back would be great ???





They look like they would be good for the snow ?? Maybe Siping would make them last longer and wear better ?

For sure they wont last longer. Siping takes life off of them due to the fact that there is less tire on the road then. Meaning more wear on what does hit the ground. Im sure it would help the snow traction if it is done right
