[V8] Winter Tire Question

As Ed said, there are several things to consider with concern to gas milage. 
But, as snows do tend to have slightly softer sidewalls, I can see how that 
would affect milage. Try running a bit more air, when you do find a suitable 
set. I've run everything from Blizzaks to generic snows, all with great 
results. I wish I could be of more help, but I haven't compared the milage 
between them over the years. Traction has been my main concern. Let us know 
if you find anything specific.
