It finally snowed here, and I have to say, the Blizzaks are freaking awesome snow tires. The X3, is like a little mountain goat for traction. What a blast to drive in the snow!

17 or 18?

Now the only dilemma is go with 17 or 18? Fewer options with 17, but cost is also less. 18 has more wheel options, but the tires are also a bit more pricey.
