I drive a '96 Volvo 960. I'll put this into perspective, lots of torque, heavy, rear wheel drive.
And I live in WI.
I have had five sets of tires on this car over the years, including Blizzaks at one time.
Nothing comes close to my new Nokian WGR2's.
They are astounding and give both true snow tire performance and all year durability (better than the 20k mi on the Blizzaks).
These have saved my life more than once this winter.
Are you looking for something more aggressive? These guys make studded racing tires
