Default anyone have BFG Long Trail tires?

ok so i've been hearing people w/ the BFG ATs or MTs have been gettin really good traction in the snow. i have a set of BFG Long Trail tires and i think that they are too hard compound wise and i dont get good traction in the snow taking off. at higher speeds once i get going they're great. but i spin the tires sooo easily in the snow when taking off. does anyone else have the same thing w/ these tires? any ideas on why i spin the tires with not much accel?

I used to have 2 of them up front, they did alreight, however I replaced them with BFG All/Terrians before winter set in. The Long Trails are one step closer to a street tire then the BFg All/Terrains.

Long Trails last forever (easily 70k miles), but they blow as far as traction goes. Anything but dry pavement, forget about it. Offroad... pick a spot and get stuck.

Unless they are in phoenix heat......

Personally i love the tires to death for any suv thats going to be sticking to the street as they ride really nice for the price. However you just cant use them in the arizona heat in the summer. For whatever reason they fail really fast. Its to the point that some discount tire stores around here will not sell them to you unless you absolutely want them. I can speak from experience on these too as i had them on my tahoe and they were great. But once i moved to AZ, the first summer (we came to az start of fall so they ran all year till about july) all 4 tires blew within 2 weeks of each other. On all four of them the plys separated. Pissed me off to no end too cuz those tires only had 40k on them, and my dad made me buy all 4 new tires to replace them.
