    After not being able to stop the truck in any type of slick condition last year, I bough a second set of rims and a set of Bridgestone Blizzaks. We had a Blizzard here last week (northern NJ) and it was the first time I got to use them in slippery conditions. They were unbelievable. 30" of snow and I had no problems at all. The truck stopped like I was on pavement. I could go through snow up to the frame no problem.
    They ride a little more softer than the stock on dry roads, but nothing that bothered me. The gas mileage is down a little bit but worth it. The tire guy also advised not to leave them on when it gets hot or they will evaporate. They are very soft so you can actually press your finger into the treads. There is also no mileage rating which is a bit concerning but I'll take them off as soon as the weather changes.

    Would recommend them!

    Good report thanks for sharing & agree good snow tires make a huge difference.
    Now we just have to watch out for the other guy & gals who drive invincible in the snow :)
