Blizzak WS60 or WS70? Differences? or IPIKE RW11?

I'm heading to Michigan to get some new winter soles for my Grand Caravan. I have boiled it down to 3 choices:
Blizzak WS60
Blizzak WS70
Hankook Ipike RW11

For the WS60 and WS70, I know Blizzak is the best name but what are the differences. Visually and by price there is no difference between the two Bridgestones. I am most likely going with the Blizzak and would like to know if the WS60s are better or the WS70s. However, the Hankooks are 100 buck cheaper.

WS70 is the upgrade version of WS60; however there are still some sizes that Bridgestone has yet to make available for WS70, therefore, if so happened that your size is not available, then WS60 may be your only option.

Difference between the two ....

If the Ws60s are older and RW11 is more for SUVs, WS70s it is then.

I went to Canadian tire earlier today and was totally shocked at the prices of winter rubber.

What size are you getting and how much are you paying for the set?

I am getting 225/65/16 for a total of $609 out the door. Then I have to pay duty n HST.
I sourced a set of winter wheels somewhere else for $45 x4 = $180

So total I'm paying is $780 x 1.13 x whatever duty they decide to *uck me in the ass with. About 900 bucks or so for the package.

^ Have you compared the prices in the GTA area tire shops. This forum has a few sponsors, like Tires23, Simply Tires, Gofortires, etc.

CT is only decent when they have the General Altimax Arctics on sale for at least 25% off....these tires have been on sale three times so far this fall. They carry only one (RW11) of the three tires you had posted originally.
