No and now I moved (October) from Colorado 7500 feet where the snows are deep to the Desert (Sin City) where it only snows once every three years. Guess I won't even get to use the 4x4 switch here. So the 07 has never seen snow at all.

I have, Poconos in PA) and they were awful.

I started pricing Michelin Cross Terrains, my tire of choice on past Expys. 97, 99, 2000, 2004 and now 2007.

Newton and Bob,
Thanks. By the looks of the tread, I suspected as much. I live near Washington DC and we have fluffy, or slushy or icy snow conditions and I have always used real snow tires on my Club Wagon. I think that I will get a pairs of snows for the Expy rear, based on your experience and the ratings at The Tire Rack.

We have been in a couple of snow and icy conditions so far. Yes the Expy does not do very well in 2wd with the 18" Pirelli's, but push the 4hi button and this Expy responds very well in the snow


Our 04 Expedition with the Continentels was the same way, I just think this truck is to big and squirly with 2wd and snow?

After reading Bob's reply, and the reviews at TireRack, I'm glad I have these http://www.hankooktireusa.com/product/tire_detail.asp?pid=850 all mounted and ready to go. I used them for part of last winter on my '03 Exp'y, and they worked great!!

D'oh!! I think I'm losing my mind.

My tires aren't Hankooks, they're Firestone 'Winterforce' http://www.bridgestone-firestone.com/news/2005/images/Winterforce.jpg
Must have forgotten since I took 'em off last April. Gettin' old/senile, I guess.

In any event, they did work great!! I think. Unless I forgot that too!! Maybe I need to see the Dr. and get some medication.

i just bought the f150 oem 20" rims with the scorpion atrs(approx 15k miles). have yet to see snow with them yet. they seem pretty agressive, so i am not anticipating any problems.

I had four Winterforce tires on my Club Wagon and they were great, and reasonably priced.
