What size of tire are you looking for? Have you checked pmctire.com for deals?A low end snow tire may act slightly better than a higher end all season tire in the snow.You also have the option to go through mpi's program and get a better set of tires and take a longer period of time to pay em off if money is tight.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Everyone's going to have different thoughts and opinions on this. Personally, I don't think snow tires are a requirement if you have a good set of all seasons more of just a luxury. With that being said, anything is better than nothing. A bottom of the barrel snow tire will still probably perform better than an all season because it's soft tire compound. Will they be just as good as blizzaks? Probably not, but maybe that's all you can afford and as I said, somethings obviously better than nothing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I always get mine studded. Gotta go easy on dry pavement, but on the highway when it's straight ice, I wouldn't want anything else on my car.
Well i'm sure any winter tire would be better than an all season but I wouldn't cheap out on something that is the only contact between the car and the road, especially in the winter.
This.I have never purchased brand new winter tires. There should be a ton of options on Kijiji.What tread depth are your Blizzak's? Why are you replacing them?
I'm not a fan of blowing for a long time anyways ; )
I've been burnt with tires from Kijiji. They might looks fine but as soon as they're mounted or under pressure cords could be letting go. Usually from improper storage.Luckily for me the seller returned my money.
I picked up a set of near new winter tires on steel rims WITH the TPS in them for 300. Oem ford steel rims. Spring/summer is the best time to find deals on winter tires.
Thanks for all the input @Madbuzz41 @Igor @DonR @benz88 @themikewoo @cluelessk @firelizard and to the others I can't tag for some reason! I need more help,Found this ad on Kijiji, rubber looks good... and it comes complete with rims. Just not sure how would it fit my car. Currently running the ff: wheel specs with no issue:Bolt pattern: 5x114.3Centerbore: 56.1mmWheel size: 18 x 8.5"Offset: +55mmTire: 245/40R18This ad's wheel spec:18x8 +35 offset 5x114.3 bolt pattern Monte Titano Rims, TPMS and wheel coversThe major difference is the offset, not sure how +35mm offset would affect the fitment compare to my original +55mm.Please advise.Thanks!
