    I've found the General Altimax to be plenty fine. I had some Haks on an old Honda years ago and they were great. I've also had Firestone winterforce and while the grip was fine, they got appreciably louder than other snows over time.

    I've been running Michelins for years on Matrix's. Not sure you can get x2s anymore. I have the Xi3s now and love them. Best prices were from TireRack

    They don't make the X-Ice2's anymore. They are X-Ice3's.

    If Costco is selling Xi2s they could be old stock stuck in their warehouse for a few years.
    Unless they haven't updated the website and your really buying Xi3s

    I'd ask before buying

    Do you have an FJ? How is it on windblown hardpack and ice?

    One of my ski buds has been through at least three sets of Nokians on his Audi A4 which is about 12 years old. He swears by them.

    How many miles are you guys getting on them. I drive a ton and tow a lot as well. For those reasons I always went with AT tires but would prefer snows for winter.
