Winter Tires - Alternatives to Blizzak

Recommended Posts

Michelin Pilot Alpin, ran them on my old TT, didnt notice excessive road noise but then again, 911's arent quiet cars on the inside to begin with. They seemed okay, probably not as good as Blizzak's in snow but better on road ( used those too a few times).

Now I have a 2WD 997 Carrera S and I use Continental DWS all seasons and I must say, I dont actually notice a huge difference from when I had the AWD TT with snow tires to this car with DWS's. Maybe from a dead start in snow...this car starts to slip a bit more, but once moving it feels the same as the TT. Ive been impressed with these DWS's. They're awesome on street too, and if driving really hard on them they slide very predictably. We dont get tons of snow here, but theres a few mornings when I drive to work in 4" or more and havent had an issue. Used to avoid all seasons and would only buy dedicated snows but i read a good revied of these and decided to try them and I must say ive been highly impressed.
