I happen to have gotten the Dunlops in the same class as the Blizzaks and Generals, but the G's had the best price and performance (reviews) by far when I was shopping...they were just sold out from like January on.....Its commonly agreed that the Blizzaks are grossly overpriced and everything else in the range is better tire for money. Although I think its a bunch of BS they are all like splitting hairs, you pay for names.
TIRERACK.COM is awesome. Is there any other? doubt it.
I got smaller steel wheels mounted with snow tires for my civic, I just have 2 going on 3 sets swap em out myself..
also snowtires fucking own.
Waiting to buy them midwinter right before you make a trip is bad advice imo, alot of tires were out of stock by that time, sales for summer tires were on full force. (not the same for brick and mortar shops, but I really like tirerack, it comes to about the same money but they get delivered to my door mounted and balanced and I get to choose and nitpick and do it on the interwebs without some dipshit pushing whatever winter tire he has in stock on me - and you could lose a good half day or more in some shitty shop). Check it out there is an entire guide on tirerack to winter tire shopping.
