Thoughts? They cost too much. Otherwise no complaints. If I was going to pay that much for a winter tire, I'd get a Nokian.

maybe they perform better...hence the price hike. although im not sure they are any more expensive than the blizzaks really. tirerack has blizzaks @ 134/each, and michelins @ 136/each (16").

anyway, anyone hear anything about the michelins performance compared to others?

I just bought these off of tirerack. Once I put them to the test in the coming weeks Ill report back on how they perform.

Mosc, Nokians are 50% again what these tires cost, though the Nokians can be used year round and last longer
