    2 part question

    Where's the best place to buy a set?

    What are some good winter tires? I don't want anything crazy, just a good solid winter tire.

    Goodyear's at Coast Tire are on sale this week..... I heard it on the radio.

    I've been meaning to go check out the prices.... Few people said their winters are pretty good.

    I've had too many bad experiences with cheap tires lately. No car of mine will ever see discount tires from this day on! :mad:

    I had bridgestone blizzaks for 2 winters and they are awesome snow and ice tires. Highly recommended!

    The pirelli ice deal is over. Apparently they bought a shitload of them hence the cheap price.

    I can get Cooper Wintermasters for $55 /each but they're probably a shitty tire.

    Well Cooper isn't exactly a small tire company. They have been manufacturing tires for years and are quite popular in the US for most cars and light truck applications. If you can get them at a great price and they seem to have a nice winter tread pattern then look into them for sure. They would definately be alot better then a no name brand steel belted radial i'm sure. They certainly won't be cost effective as a proven excellent winter tire like a Michelin Arctic Alpin, Bridgestone Blizzak, BFG Slalom etc so it all depends on how much you are willing to spend.
