Re: Snow tire recommendations

Not sure of a snor tire in that price renge, I just bought a set of 
Blizzaks today and they are incredible.  It has snowed about a foot in 
Colorado!  Before I bought my tires in town I looked at the tire rack.  
Their prices aren't all they are cracked up to be.  Once you figure in 
shipping(Quoted nrarly $50)  mounting and balancing in town and the wait 
purhasing the tires locally seemed like the right thing to do.  Further 
more I don't thing that you can get a road hazard warranty with them.
