I have had many different tires from Hankook to Mich. The blizz are miles ahead in terms of traction. Our car is picky about side wall strength, with the power of the v6 it will not track properly, or safely with thin sidewalls (ie the original GY all seasons). I was nervous about my wife and her heavy foot wandering because of this. NO problems!
It pays to pay a bit more for a superior tire.
They will wear fast if not removed in time as most winters tires.
