Question Winter tires???

Okay after driving the trip to college Sunday night with the stock tires in the little bit of snow I had I realized it would be suicide to run the stock tires all winter long.... So does anyone have any good opinions for winter tires????

I got a price on these from my buddy 320$ installed normally over 400$ but he owns his own shop and gives me deals.....

Bridgestone winterforce.

I just had the same eye-opening experience down here in Washington, PA. I had the Winterforces on my Subarus and loved them. I will be ordering some this Friday (payday!).

BTW - I have some property up in Clarion. Are you at the University?

We have 72 acres between Strattanville and Fisher. I want to get up there and scout for black bear.

The Winterforces got me to work every weekend in the worst snow. I worked at 7 Springs Mountain Resort in Champion, PA as a ski instructor for 5 years and we had to be there in the worst of it. Asymmetrical AWD and a manual helped as well. I will be getting the Winterforces from tirerack.com - 245/75-16 for $73 can't be beat. I'm debating whether or not the extra $12 a tire for studs is worth it. I'm thinking yes.
I tried a Dunlop one year and hated it. I had some other Generic and they just wore out fast. My friend who bought my Forester will be running the studded Winterforces out in Jackson, WY this winter. They held up great winter after winter.

$320 local. Do it.

I run Blizzaks, but have a couple friends w/ Winterforce. Very popular around here. To stud or not comes down to the big question... You encounter more sanded roads (ice, hardpack roads) or they salted (slush)?

Either way, probably the best bang for the buck out there.

Gonna mount them on another set of wheels?
