Well, the last couple days I've been glad to have Blizzaks on

Only other winter tires I have experience with are Dunlop Winter Sport M3s (had on old Porsche 944) the difference in snow between those and the summer tires was unbelievable - that car went from undriveable to uneventful.

You can justify winter tires if you figure that a) you can sell the extra set of wheels on if/when you sell the car and get some money back and b) you can only wear out one set of tires at a time, so if you keep the car long enough, you may actually save money on tires, winter tires being somewhat less expensive than summer ones.

Personally I wouldn't be without them, but I have family/friends in the Pittsburgh area and don't want to drive my Jeep if I don't absolutely need to.
