Default Tire recommendation

Hanging out in the Jeep forum gave me an idea about the vette. Since I doubt us NorthEast folks will ever see green grass again, I'm going to put a lift kit on the white princess. Most of the GrandCherokee guys usually go with a 3 inch lift. I'm figuring maybe 18 to 20 inches on the vette. That should give me enough clearance for the snow and as an added benefit, I won't need a jack to change the oil. My only concern are tires. I'm guessing the P225 70R15 BFG's wouldn't have an agressive tread for the snow. I'm looking for suggestions...

Come up to my house, and we'll throw the 265LT16s from my K1500 on it! GREENSBURG, PA?

We get fairly good snow removal on my road. Probably because I live right behind Corvette World :D :D :D

Tires? Come on, how about some of those triagular track sytems on all four corners, like they have for 4-wheel drive trucks and atv's?

Try a 35in. BFGs that should be agressive enough. :lol:
