yeah been rockin the x-ice now for my second winter, not sure if Blizzaks would've been much better but the x-ice seems to manage ok. it warmed up unusually here in Anchorage and rained making super slick ice with water on top. Almost slid into a snowbank at 20 mph but idk what tire would really make a difference in that scenario. All in all great in snow, decent enough on ice I would say.
