Anybody have experience with and without kedge grip on their treadright tires? Main reason I ask, how do they differ on pavement with and without kedge grip? Im looking for decent grip on wet/snowy payment, my at's now handle payment wet/dry great but havent used them in snow yet. I drive my D1 daily and need grip in all situations, on and off road.

With or without that kedge grip stuff? Hows traction on wet and snowy roads?

Have you ever had to run studded tires where you live? The kedge grig is for driving on ice, not snow. They also wear out faster, according to treadwright. I would only consider them if you lived in an area that has constant snow of the ground. M
I doubt it would be needed most places south of the mason-dixon line.

W/O I didnt get to play much in the snow last weekend cause I lost power and stayed int to try keeping my stoker / fish tank going. They are louder than I expected from a A/T tire. I'll be at ROTR you can see them in action. cheers

i opted out of the kedge grip because they wear faster and the damn tread is agressive of enough as is. not to mention they wanted more money for it.

They told me kedge grip is for road traction, not off-road traction. It will grip on ice better.
