OK, but the sipping on Blizzaks does not go the entire tread depth.  Maybee
about halfway down.  So, you have a lot less sipping as you wear them down
and I hear they wear down faster than other tires.  My parents have Blizzaks
on both thier cars, but only one season.  We will see how they do towards
the end of this season.  On the Hakkas, the sipping is very deep (goes down
the entire tread depth) and there are lots of them too.
