My WRX should be coming in sometime in November and I was wondering which winter tires to go with.
I commute about 40 miles to work a day (+40mi return trip) so I need a durable, long lasting tire so I don't break the bank.
I live in New York so our winters can be pretty harsh at times. However, I will probably take my Jeep to work on the really bad storms.
The Blizzaks seem to get a lot of publicity on the forums but I have read that they wear out very quickly.
Here are some tires I have been looking at:
Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....odClar=Limited)
Pirelli Sottozero 3 (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....odClar=Limited)
Dunlop Wintersport 4D (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....odClar=Limited)
Also, I am definitely going to get another set of rims to avoid the constant mounting.
do you guys run steel wheels for the winter? I'm thinking about picking these alloys up (any thoughts on focal wheels?)
I would rather get a set of 16" wheels for the winter since tire costs are a lot cheaper. But, I can't seem to find any, except for the steelies.
