    I'm looking for new winter tires and I'm wondering what everybody else's experiences are? I'm leaning towards the BFG Blizzark. I've heard a lot of good things about them so far. Thanks in advance.

    Antares Grip 20....super great price and perform very very well in New York winter.

    Sidewall a little softer than some of the more expensive tires. But they are meant for turns. The softer sidewall is my only con to them.

    Sorry, typo. "Aren't" meant for turns. Not "are"

    I thought that's what you meant. Lol I would people in New York would have a good idea about winter tires. I live in Oregon and we don't get a ton of snow but this year we are and getting a lot more ice too.

    I had gotten really used to having 0 traction with hankook rs3's. Just finally mounted up a set of 205/50/17 general altimax. They are fantastic so far and can't beat the price...

    They are extremely soft though. I think that's an attribute all winter tires will have though.

    I recently got 235/40/18 blizzaks on my Xi. Only had one snow storm since then and they're great,especially at braking distance.

    We had a lot of ice after the storm and it's not a "holy shit, I'm going to die" feeling you get with all seasons.

    Turning from a red light is still kinda sketchy, but that's to be expected.

    Actually aren't terrible when it's dry either.

    Discount tire will throw you a deal if you talk to them. I got all 4 mounted and balanced with the warranty for $750ish
