    2015/16 Snow tire thread

    For the last few years I've been using General Altimax Arctic snows and have been very happy with them.



    Any reason I shouldn't just get a new set? Or am I missing out on something new?
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    Interesting. I, too, have been running the General Altimax. While I've been generally happy, I was thinking I may be able to find something better. What about the Nokian Hakkapellittas?

    This has been discussed ad nauseam in the past. Snow tires are leaps and bounds better handling in winter. Period.

    I like the way you think. Keeps the lift lines shorter.

    I've sported all-seasons on my truck and SUV for my entire life. This year I'm thinking about switching to Michelin X-Ice 2s.

    They seem to be the best option, but also the most expensive.
