Can't speak about the GBC Spartacus or the Black Diamond tires, but I have to agree on the Bighorns. They are great in snow... especially aired down.

I have Spartacus radials, great in the mud, haven't had them in the snow yet another couple months then we'll have plenty. But I have a feeling they'll do just as good in the snow asnthey do in the mud

Most all the good all around trail tires that prove good in mud are usually good in snow. They've pretty much been narrowed down to GBC, Pit Bulls, Big Horns, and Black Diamond. From all you read on the forum they all seem to be very good tires. The horns have been around alot longer so you'll have more input about them. IMO the other three have slowly out performed them simply because of new technology.

That's pretty impressive suspension on that Jeep CW. You must take your off-roading seriously. In photos 2 & 3, it looks like your front tire is up against the fender. Is it just the way the photo was taken or can you lift the frame from inside the cab?
