Blizzack ws-60s


they only have like 2 x ws-50s left.. i really wanted those...


but i guess it aint bad to get all 4 for $340... plus free install/balance.

Given the trend, it will suck unless its 4WD/AWD.

Got a snow day at the office, Working out of the house today.

Mixed blessing, I get to sit at home and relax, but because I setup our VPN everyone still has to work, Lol.

I've got a set of Blizzack WS-50s. They're awesome. I've never felt that I was going to loose control in the snow since I've had them. I point the car in a direction and it goes.

WHERE did anyone say anything like that?

What are you jealous that I have tons of traction when I want and can kick my rear end out at will?

Real cars dont do donuts with the Ebrake.

I had a set of Blizzak Ws50 on the Cobra last winter and while I had 100% confidence in any snow even if it was so high I was plowing with the car they were overkill. The sidewall was so flexible that the cornering and all around handling sucked.

I switch to performance winter tires. V rated still has the zig zag Ice cutting groves and they clean snow like no other. No problem even in the recent snow storm.

I blasted the cobra out of a parking lot with 10 inches of snow today like it was cool. And the car handles better. Downsized to 225 50 to cut through the snow.
