Which Tires for trip in snow?

I live in Houston and I am planning on taking a road trip to Chicago. I am wondering if I should put the stock A/T tires back on or leave my aftermarket 37" x 13.5" Procomp extreme all-terrain tires on. I have a 2008 F250 crewcab FX4 longbed.
Thanks, Jeff

I think you would just need to add weight... but thats my opinion... I am going to the snow capital of MI in a few days and am adding between 500-750lbs to my bed.

Your aftermarket tires should be fine. I run mine Toyo's year round in Alaska with no added weight in the bed. Not sure, but I would imagine the roads would be clear of snow....just keep an eye out for ice.

if you are worried run your stock tires... they are WAY better than your big tires unless they are siped/studded. I have 13.5 wide Toyos and the stocks (even though they are crap) are 5 times better in the slush and ice. I also run with at least 500 pnds of wieght in the back.

well I just got up to northern Mi and have not gone through multiple inches of snow but about an inch is normal and my truck with stock tires and 500lbs of sand in the back in 4x4 is just fine.
