Snow tires - Blizzaks...
My dad just purchased an S6 wagon. Having never owned a turbo before, my
dad is amazed by the acceleration and keeps telling me "she's a leaper,
Phil". In general, he loves the car and it has restored his faith in
Audi (he had lost it with our '82 5000). He is having an interesting
problem with a small oil leak. Audi of North America is baffled,
claiming they've never seen such a problem before. They just replaced
the head gasket without any luck. Their next effort is a new head coming
in a week or so.
But, back to the point of the message. Winter is fast approaching in New
York so my dad sent me in search of the net's advice on winter tires. He
has read great reviews of Blizzaks and bought a set last winter for his
other car (and was quite happy with them). However, he's heard rumors
that the "microcell" or whatever technology the Blizzaks use, might not
last more than one season, leaving him with a set of mediocre winter
Has anyone had positive experience with Blizzaks or can anyone recommend
another brand of tire?
