Anyone have one? I am looking for an unbiased recommendation. Here's the tires/wheels that Tirerack recommended:

235/55HR17 Dunlop Winter Sport M3
17X8 Borbet Type VS Bright Silver Paint

I bought that same setup from my local wheel and tire dealer. They actually purchased them from Tirerack. It cost me a bit more, but at least I have a place to take the car for service and rotation. We had snow yesterday and the tires worked great. I think they will last a bit longer than Blizzaks(also great snow tires)

Bought the 17" tires Jake recommended at Tire Rack. They were 235/55HR17 Dunlop Winter Sport M3. Work great!

Well if you don't have them today,you really need them now! I used 18" Dunlops on the 750 and have them on my wifes car as well. What a difference. Unless you plan on high speed cornering and normal summer driving,the 17"ers are actually better in the snow,they are narrower and bite a little better. And,they are cheaper,too.
