I'd encourage you to read page 57 in the just-out Fall 2002 quattro
quarterly ["Winter technical tire buying guide: What to look for in a winter
tire"] - a good discussion about the various types & designs of snow tires,
including Blizzaks specifically; included is 'application info' (what
designs/types work best under certain conditions - wet, ice, slush, hard
pack, soft snow, etc.)
I don't know what model of Hakkas you've got - I'm heavily biased towards
them [having run 2 sets of the previous H10s; now I have a new set of H1s
waiting in the garage]. We get rarely get any snow in greater Portland, but
Mt. Hood is only 1-1/2 hours away, pass elevation ~ 4k, then another steep
~1k to the base of the 2 major ski areas. I grew up in northern lower
Michigan, where the snowfall is significant & lasts all winter, so I do know
from snow ;-) - I miss driving in it.
