well the last part of your statement won't come true but yes a better tire will help. Are you talking about off roading in snow or just driving on snow covered roads

Better tires and a locker will help, but you won't be able to compete with a 4x4.

depending on the type of locker it varies.

You probably also have a 7.5 rear axle which is a weak axle so it is risky if you have to get on it and it is locked
