For me the major problem with the LT is the tires are very expensive.

Bob and others, would this site help?
Its a site I found through my searches for winter(snow) tires for my Ural.
It looks to have the BMW tires required;

For me for example....
METZELER - ROADTEC Z6 SPORT TOURING RADIAL - 160/70ZR17 $133.61 $133.61 Remove this item
METZELER - SPORTEC M-3 HIGH PERFORMANCE SPORT RADIAL - 120/70ZR17 $91.76 $91.76 Remove this item
Shipping estimates for me is $19.94 for this order..
pretty cheap prices and if ya go through the steps you should be able to find out the shipping for you, before the click to buy. I book marked it, as it's the cheapest I have ever found for tires so far. (send me a PM for feedback- cheapest /not cheapest- I'm curious)
Been fun riding to work with my 2wd Ural side car. +6 degrees coldest so far. I too am considering selling my 4x4 truck cause its becoming obsolete...Can't wait for the salt and sand to disappear to get my baby Blue out.
For those out there that think i'm crazy for riding in the snow and cold weather. My standard stock answer Is, "I use to be, but I'm Ok now"
PS- I do have cold protection(no heated seat though), one of the pcs of equipment is called a "Insulated Lap Robe" an old fashioned Idea that I never heard of before, untill last year...if it gets to below zero I might have to think about wearing more then just jeans...
