Summer is almost gone and that bring me to thinking about winter... BBrrrr. I was wondering which winter tires everyone has? What are the best winter tires out there?

Blizzak WS-60 gets my vote for best winter tire, being an ice radial.

Anyone interested in Semperit? Should I stock some?

I just bought Blizzak WS-60s from Tirerack.com It came to about $397 Canadian (assuming that I don't get dinged coming back accross the border. The best deal on rims I have found is from the MB dealer at $375. Mounting/balancing is from $80-100 depending who does it.

Consuer reports rates the Continetals higher for traction, but from what I have read the Blizzaks last longer.
