looking for winter tires

Looking for tires for next winter now. Rather get them now while there are some decent discounts available. '09 Ranger Sport 4x4. What's your opinion on these?

Bridgestone BLIZZAK DMZ-3 - P255/70R16 - $125

Michelin LATITUDE X-ICE - 255/70R16 - $132

Thanks!

Which ever ones you can get for cheaper, do it. I run x-ice on my truck and they are great, blizzaks are probably a bit better.

I've run Blizzacks on all the winter vehicles, since they came on the market.
Not cheap but worth every penny.
I even put them on the kids cars.
I hear X-Ice's are almost as good.!!
$125 sounds like a steal.!!!

Shazzam! Have fun!

I'm happy with just +4 - not sure what I would do with the other 28 degrees. lol

Last time I heard from HBT was just before Ken's funeral last year.

I keep in contact with Don (htrddsl - mountie) who says that Rob is doing well and keeping busy with work and family.
