I just had some Firestone winterforces put on a couple of the crew trucks at work, next time I need winters for the truck that's what I'm gonna go with. They're studdable and pretty beefy, tons of siping

Michele had blizzaks on her subarua when she lived up there for the one year and they were a good tire. Not studded but she had no problems

My dad had some nokian snow rated all year round tires. Nice theory, but they didn't last at all.
I think about 30k on a hyundai tucson.

In Mission you don't want snow tires in the winter.
When it snows you'll slow down way too fast compared to other traffic and end up getting rear ended....

This year I'm running firestone WinterForce studded, I was happy with them previously. Studded are noisier but I find a big difference on ice specifically. We run studded on all our service trucks and sales trucks. It definitely pays to get good ones though
