      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

good snow tires

Question

We have Firestone Wilderness AT's on our Jeep Grand Cherokee and just love them in the winter. Snow, ice, you name it, they seem to grab better than any tire we've ran before. One thing to check though, if you do look into them, I've noticed two different tread patterns on different Wilderness AT's. One style is more aggressive than the other. We have the more aggressive style on our Jeep. I'm sure there is a differece in the labeling of the tires but it's just something to be aware of.

BF Goodrich All-Terrain off road are my favorite. They will go a long time too.

The Firestone Steeltex Radials are a very good tire. I had them on a Suburban. They were still on it when I traded it. They last a long time and have a very good tread pattern. Just another tire to look at.....T

I have a 1999 2500 Silverado with the Michelin LTX M/S. Best tire I have ever run, great traction, smooth ride and low noise. I highly recommend them.

I have BF Goodrich A/T's on my 2500 chevy and they are all right. They can get a bit loose in heavy rain and they do tend to pick up rocks. Heard good things about the Goodyear workhorse. Also had good luck with the Wild Country All Terains, Twin City tire carries them.

I have BF Goodrich AT KO on my truck since I bought it. I got 63000 miles out of my first set and I just purchased a new set this past weekend. I still had a little tread left but I wanted a new set before buck season. They have been good tires for me I don't get stuck very often and everytime that I have gotten stuck with a little work I got right out.

Just put four new tires on my truck this weekend. I opted for Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo's. They are categorized as off-road tires (as opposed to highway all-season), but ride just as quietly as the factory Goodyear Wranglers on my 2001 F-150.

Check out this site for a thorough review of darn near all the tires out there.....I can't put up an unauthorize link, so...

world wide web . tire rack . com

Read the reviews, look at comparisons and pay close attention to listed prices, too. I got a local shop to basically match the price I could have gotten off the above site.

Pay close attention to various models under the same tire name....tread patterns vary greatly and make a huge difference.

Good Luck!

I'm with TBone for the Firestone Steeltex.

If you rotate tires every 8-10 thousand miles you'll get over 55k on them--not bad.

Buy the LT's which are what all SUV's and Trucks should have, regardless of which brand you buy.

I got a set snowtires at Fleet. Deep tread, excellent wear and quiet on the road. Mounted them on stock rims I picked up at John's Auto Parts in Blaine.

I've been running tires from a company called Nokian the last 2 winters. They are incredible! They have some sort of different rubber compound that makes them really sticky, and they've lasted good for me as well. I think the company is from Finland, they probably know a thing or 2 about winter driving! I've got the Haakepelitas on my Dakota.

I have the duelers on my blazer and I can't say enough good things about them. i can't seem to get my truck stuck with them so I think you made a good choice if you drive a lot in the snow.
><>deadeye
p.s. those nokian tires are looking pretty good too, I might try thoose out when I get a little car, my freind had them on hit focus last winter and could drive through anything.

I also looked at the Nokian. They are Finnish made. I decided against them because the guy who talked them up so much to me also talked up some other tires for my wife's car.

I checked out those car tires on the aforementioned web site and they were rated at the absolute bottom of about 40 comparable tires.

So, I decided not to trust what the guy said about Nokians, as well. But, he claimed that they were better than the Duelers and the Michelin LTX's....for whatever that's worth.

Waiting for snow to try out my Dueler Revo's.

    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
