Thanks Arabas. Couldnt go wrong for $200. On tirerack, they look allright and even thought I dont care what they looked like since they were only for winter tires, I kinda cared a little bit. If that makes sense.
But when I got home and actually saw them on the car, I thought they were actually pretty nice. The silver goes better with the car then the chrome of the stock wheels.
Yep, Blizzacks seems the way to go. I went with Michellin X-ice when I bought snows last winter. They got me around just fine, but I think I would have been happier with the Blizzacks.
Like Ive said to myself when trying to pick them out. Never having owned a set of winter tires before, the cheapest winter tire is probably going to be better than the best all-season tire. (for its designated purpose of the season) But Ive also heard good things about the Mastercraft GlacierGrip and Firestone WinterForce tires as well from friends that have owned them in the past.
