  1. Snow performance (Road Trip) with studded Hakkapalita

    I had nothing in the bed. It just tracked great. Don’t know that I needed 4hi on the passes but it gave me confidence. I’ve run Nokias before on a LR3 without studs and they were great. These are just better.

  8. Dedicated snow tires?

    I just ordered the same in Montana. Tried to buy locally and the only Nokian shop said they were back ordered 100 days. Meanwhile I had 4 in my Amazon shopping cart. Oh well. Be here Thursday. I have used Nokian in the past on my LR3 and dedicated snowtires make so much difference in places...
  9. Go Rhino Xtreme Overland Rack

    New here but appreciated the input while installing the Rhino. PITA to get together and on but I'm happy with the look for now. More to add.
