Geezer If you're driving lots of highway miles its better to get ones without the soft tread compounds (blizzacks, etc.). Nokian (aka Hakkas) have models made for this purpose. Cost more and are harder to find but are well worth it. We have the Winterforce as well (couldn't pass up the price when compared to others) and they're holding up nicely,are showing little wear and have surprizing grip on snow and ice .

RS-WannaBe no sry i didnt. tyvm , that link was helpful, but i guess in the first 2 pages of it i didnt see any one with any highperformance tires that are awsome in the snow but great on the pavement as well. Because i but 70-80 miles on in an average day and about 50 miles of that is dry pavement. I do not wish to buy new snw tires every other season.

You did see this thread, didn't you?...>>>The "Official" Winter 2005/2006 Tire and Rim Thread

lildisco I believe the tires i have are Winterforce Magna Grips on a stock 15 rim. I have never got stuck with these and Ohio's Winter last year was one of the worst. I take that back, the only time i got stuck was when there was like 3 or 4 foot of snow (around Christmas time last year for all you Ohioans) and my car dug all the way to the ground. So basically my cars' frame was resting on snow. i was able to rock back and fourth after minor digging and get out on my own powah. Here's what they look like. Sorry for the Glossyness but, it was a nice day yesterday and my car needed a good washing and waxin

..:: sleestak ::.. I'll plug one more... the Dunlop M3's are supposedly VERY nice in the snow and still retain a good amount of dry traction

2004SVTAutoXer the top of the line is dunlop winter sport m3s

they hold in snow like it's not even there, and are better than the stock tires on dry pavement
