I have high hopes for them as excellent snow tires, whereas a tire like the Michelin X-Ice is more of a ice tire. If you're doing a lot of highway miles, it might not be the best, but for traction in deep snow and in urban driving (which is what I do) I have high expectations. Time will tell...

Has the same thing, the salesman guided me to the Toyo due to the city driving. Overall they were slightly cheaper than the Michelins, and there is a mail-in rebate of $50 to $80 for the Toyo:

Were the X-ice and Blizzaks on your short list as well ?MS MSP wrote: ↑Oct 21st, 2013 11:24 amI just bought a set for my CUV yesterday. Not installed yet.
$80 MIR as mine are 18's. I just sent in the paperwork this morning.
One of the tech's at Simply Tire said "you bought the best winter tires money can buy".
I liked the fact they come with 13/32 of an inch tread (in my size) to start.....may last a bit longer. The Michelins were 11/32
