I am driving to the mountains almost every weekend to go skiing, and the weather can be very unpredictable (Alberta winter conditions). I ran steelies last winter and they were fine other than trying to take them off after 7 months of winter, now i'm thinking of using alloys this time around.
Does anyone have experience running alloys during the winter months?
What's the best winter tire between michelin X-ice, bridgestone blizzak, and nokian hakk?
16 or 17inch? Does it really make a noticeable difference?
I have asked around at some tires shops for advice, but I just thought advice from fellow skiers who make multiple trips to the mountains would help with my final choice!
