Am looking for some recommendations for some winter gravel tires, where conditions can be snow as well here in Munich, Germany. I have as a main tire on 700c wheels the Gravelking SK 700C x 35c, and the frame can take up to 41c.

Can anybody recommend some tires with deeper thread that are better for snow on gravel and farm track roads? They don't necessarily need to be tubeless, as wheelset takes both and i have never used tubeless before!

Do you think or find them fine for snow in Vienna, Austria and surrounding areas. And what size do you ride?

Hi Alex, if there's snow on the roads here, the salt will melt it before I ride - so on the road bikes I stay on slicks.

If there's proper snow in the Wienerwald forest, I'll be on my drop-bar MTB with Conti 2.4 Enduro tires :)

I'm planning on getting GK SKs for rough gravel at some point though.

Is it snow or ice to?
For ice you'd need studs
If front tire slides, you will most likely crash.
