In Reply to: Winter driving - Conti Contacts or Snows???? posted by akula on December 12, 1999 at 22:59:31:

In order of best ice/worst dry performance, Blizzak MZ01, Pirelli Winter ICE, Michelin Pilot Alpin.

I've used the Pirellis for 3 winters and they've held up nicely. Will probably try the Michelins when the Pirellis wear out. My wife had Blizzaks on her Saab and they lasted all of 18K miles!

: The Contacts were not very good in nice weather (handling is not a strongpoint), I was wondering how they perform in cold, wet conditions. Should I go with these or invest in snow tires. If so, which ones. Thanks!
