Ok, i got stuck in the snow last night, Friggin Colorado Winter storms. We got 11 inches of snow in 3 hours. Anyways I eventually got free using engine heat and spinning the tires incessantly. Needless to say I have almost no treat left now........... So I have decided to prevent this from happening in the future. I have an excuse for not being prepared, as I just moved here from the south where an 1/8th inch of snow means the whole city shuts down. I need to know which do better in deep snow, chains or studded tires?
