Default Firestorm Snow tires ?

Hi ! I was just wondering what you guys would use on a firestorm as snow tires. I used the stock tires last winter but it was very very low traction !! Since it is a 2wd, it was always getting stuck. I was thinking of putting screws on my tires but if someone knows a kind of rubber that works well in snow and could fit my firestorm i d really like to try them !!

Thank you ! i'm anxious to try the track i biulded in my backyard with the first 12 inches of snow we had yet !!!!!!

Might wanna read this some good ideas
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_9338561/tm.htm
its in the electric forum so it would be best not to mention nitro (some of them it seems are allergic to seeing the word and have convulsions )

I'm running [link=http://www.prolineracing.com/products/Paddle_3_2_Sand_Tires-18-115.html]Paddle Tires[/link] on the back of my Revo right now. They grab awesome, just cost you in steering response. My truck spent more time today flapping the front wheels in the breeze than it did with them in the snow. Good luck.
