You do not want to buy SNOW tires, you want "Winter" tires. Winter tires,
unlike snow tires have a less aggressive tread of softer rubber layer on the
top, much like motorcycle tires, that work much better on plowed and wet
I have owned six Mustang GT convertibles since 1999. I currently own a 2009
and I drive Mustang year round in the mountains of Pennsylvania. I have
tried several brands and at one point I purchased 'Blistixs' and the were
the worst winter tire of all the brands I used, because they did not track
well on wet or icy roads.
My latest three seta have been Cooper, great winter tire and reasonable
I might be a wierd old , but the idea of even <winter> tires on a mustang
just seems like blasphemy (and I live where winter is really WINTER). Of
course we don't drive ours in the winter (it's a convertible... driving with
the top up seems like blasphemy, too).
Now... in my youth.... way back then I could be so wierd that most of you
folks would seem normal....
Don't try driving a car with welded spider gears in the winter....
Blizzaks are one year or two year tires. EXCELLENT for the first year
or so, then just good all seasons. I've been running Dunlop Graspics
for the last 7 years - ALMOST as good as the Blizzak first year, and
just as good for the next 3 or 4, at least - for me. Got 6 years on
the Pontiac TransSport, and one more on the PT Cruiser - but that last
year was not a "good" year - replaced them this year. Had them on
daughter's Neon and wife's Mystique - and now on daughter's new Civic.
