I run General Altimax Arctics on my Subaru and Blizzak WS70s on my wife's Freestyle - both provide great grip on snow and ice but degrade the handling on dry pavement due to the softer rubber. That being said, the benefits well outweigh the costs - I'd go with the General's in a heart beat.

FWIW - I commute 32 miles a day, mostly interstate.
