Re: How to Get a 4x4 for NR Hunter in WY
You can check tire chains. We bought some over the winter holidays in Germany, drove to Austria and then checked them from Zurich to Washington DC, definitely can be done.
Also agree with what was said about tread not being THAT important, if it's wet, everything will be sludge and clog any tread, chains would be the way to go if you really want to get onto the back roads. We rented a Ford Explorer, beat the crap out of it but worked fine in the end.
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
