ALright. The only one I've tried is the Blizzak. It's decent as long as
the special tread remains, and you're not in hurry to go anywhere.

And I'm also in search of a good set of performance snow tires. So right
now I'm just echoing what I've seen. There are always good and bad posts
regarding each tires. As for the Guardex, it's not that it's "bad." But
what I've seen (rec.autos.*) is that Guardex (in use) wasn't as impressive
as the high-tech it uses would lead one to believe. I think it's about
what you have observed on your set, hmm?

For now, I'm leaning toward the Hakka 1 with or without studs installed.
Has anyone used the Hakka 1's? The main use would be on the highway --
dry, wet snow, fluffy snow, packed snow, and occasional ice. (^: Noise may
be overlooked if the performance is good.
