I've had my WRX for about a month now but haven't yet gotten snow tires. We're getting pounded with snow and ice tonight, and although it was a blast driving in it with no one else on the road, I'm pretty sure I'd feel a lot safer with dedicated winter tires on her under normal driving conditions. My questions is do I get studded snow tires or should I go with the Blizzak type winter tires? I had studs on my outback wagon and I can't recall them ever sliding at all. Will the Blizzaks give me that much performance? Basically I just need to know, will Blizzaks grip as well on slippery black ice as the studded snows do? Thanks for any info you could provide.
