Daniel Kim says:

Thank god for California weather. We rarely get serious winter storms here. Props to those that do have to fight through snow!

Jason Hall says:

I have general altimax on my legacy gt and love them. I’m in New York and haven’t had a problem yet.

CH3FxEXcELL3NcE says:

Affordable winter tires? Hankook I*Pike RS W419. Studdable, 30% cheaper than the Blizzak WS80, and holy crap they have a lot of traction for the price.

I run them on my 06 legacy GT (turbo) and I can’t even do donuts in the snow if I want to. They are too grippy haha. The only time they ever spin is on sheet ice, either caused by neglected roads with refrozen slush, or freezing rain/ fog

3piece mando says:

nokian my friend, is #1 tne hakkapillita and the wrg3..

Garrulus says:

“… or if you don’t live in Texas or California, which is like happens to be 80% of where everybody lives…”
An American just being american.

Joshua Stump says:

There are two new Hankooks that push the form and function boundaries also.

justahappyfellow says:

Swedish here, Nokian hakka 8 & Kumho Winter craft is among the best for our roads. Both are studded though, but you just need to run studded here when winter comes.

That Gopro Kid says:

0:44 is that in Afton mn, I am pretty Shure I live like a mile from there

Thor Cain says:

lol… Hakka’s studded are the best, northern British Columbia.

PirateRick says:

nokian Hakkapeliitta is also a very good winter tire made, designed and tested in Finland

saby8765 says:

1:45 into the video, I’m just gonna say right now, it’s Blizzak?

Ezekiel Rockafield says:

This video speaks to my soul. Northern Wisconsin represent.

Chill Man says:

Why am I watching this in South Texas

BList says:


wildcard749 says:

I have michelin xice3’s right now and they are OK, i feel like the blizzaks grip better on ice, they feel like grappling hooks on ice

Justin Mochoruk says:

thanks lol been looking for some good winter tires for canada living heh

YourAverageJoe says:

I personally run LM-32’s because that is what was available to me when I moved to MN from Cali last winter. They get the job done on my Genesis Coupe I just threw some sand bags in the trunk and haven’t had any real issues. Definitely going to switch to a Jeep, subaru, or evo, but until then so far so good. Might have to grab a new set of tires when I buy new rims, might try Nokian out.

Some Car guy says:

I got to hyped when you mentioned firestone winterforce 2 since I just bought them lol

TenB33rs says:

As far as the Blizzak ws 80. It is a dual compound tread. Once the tread wears down it performs more like a all season with more aggressive lugs.
I contacted Bridgstone last week about this and this is what they said… and I quote.
“When the Blizzak WS80 is 50% worn, a tread depth indicator molded into the tread design lets the driver know that only 10% of the remaining tread is Mutlicell compound.”
That to me says it all…. Do yourself a favor and get some Nokian’s or Michelin x ice’s.


My hankook Ventus v2 concept2 are NOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOD in snow or ice . Dry and wet they do great . Once it’s too cold forget about it .

Gabe Hallett says:

You guys should make a video on winter tires that focus on dry/ wet road performance as well, aka they won’t ruin the handling of your car when you aren’t in the snow. Perrelli and Dunlop both make tires like this

Emavs33 says:

Got a question. Would it be better to have a good summer tire in the winter or a cheap winter tire?

beanet0wn says:

Hankook winter i pikes is all I’ve ever used in Alaska. Even at -40 they stay soft. Never owed anything 4wd or awd.

rotary love says:

Lol we got snow here too in Minnesota u damn cheese heads

Art2Gecko says:

Nokian hakkapeliitta?

Michael Parrish says:

Now we need summer tires!!!!!

Jax CZE says:

Yeah, Bridgestone, Firestone in Europe are not so good, even in tests, but i think it is because of different weather conditions. But nice review.

Harufire Racing says:

Nokian and General both make amazing winter tires, and they are budget friendly.

lavigpm says:
