IBJGH, what tires spec did you go with? 245/45R 18's or did you go down to 245/45R 17's? Tango131 you raise some good points as well. We probably have a bit colder nastier weather in MN than you do in Chicago but its close and based on last winter there was no snow to your point. I've always preferred Michelin tires but tire rack rates a few other higher. I wonder how reliable tire rack is with their ratings and if marketing dollars influence their ratings??
