View 24G, need recommendations for Snow Tires

I've been searching high and low, but I can find precious little info about snow tires. Where I live, snow is a serious issue. Does anyone have any recommendations for snow tires for me?

Thanks!

All weather tires, like OEM tires, have worked for me. I've driven in snow storms, drive slow especially with high winds. Not something I like to do BTW, only when absolutely necessary.

You can easily get snow tires (buy 6) for in the same size as your all weather tires, but it isn't going to help much. Dual tires and snow are a poor combination anyway. Chains are a poor choice as well since they can seriously damage the underneath of the motorhome if you have a problem. You can look for snow socks in your size and they can get you past the chains required areas.

But my recommendation is that you try not to use the coach in the snow.

Thanks for the advice. Yes, I'm finding that motorhomes and snow aren't a good combination. Especially since I've read it's best to get truck tires and I'm not even sure there's such a thing as truck snow tires. I'll post more after I ask over at Les Schwab.

I ended up getting LT215/85R 16/E Hankook iPike Rw11 VSB 115/112Q TL. Studded.

I'll let y'all know how they work out. I was out driving on ice the other day and slipped a bit. NOT a good feeling in a motorhome. I don't care so much if my 20 year old Suburban ends up in a ditch, but not my Winnebago!!

Sure glad I don't live in a snow area anymore.

Look at Nokian tires if you are looking for a dedicated snow tire for the Sprinter chassis. https://www.nokiantires.com/winter-t...apeliitta-lt2/
Some versions can be studded.
