Blizzaks vs Cooper Discoverer True North Winter Tires.

Posted this on the continental tires hot deals thred. Figured this is more appropriate.

Anyone have any feedback or experience with Cooper Discoverer True North Winter Tires that CT sells? Seems about $200 cheaper than the Bridgestone Blizzaks I got at Costco last month.

This is not considering the $200 online voucher I got from Costco (not finding anything to spend it on just yet). The $15CT on $100 or more spend could add another $60. It's pretty close if you consider the voucher, otherwise the Cooper price is quite a bit better.

Autoguide reviewed the Cooper as "average". If your talking about the Blizzak WS90 it is widely regarded as one of the best snow/ice tires money can buy treadwear isn't the best on the Blizzaks but snow/ice grip and braking is the best.

Honestly the Blizzaks are worth the $200 premium for piece of mind and safety if you can squeeze out 4 years out of the Blizzaks it's only costing you $50 bucks more per year no brainer if you look at it that way.

DM-V2 were introduced around the same time as the WS80 which are the older version of the WS90. WS80 were designed more for cars while the DM-V2 were designed more for SUV and trucks. Performance of DM-V2 should be comparable to WS80 which means excellent snow and ice grip but average treadwear life. I had a set of WS80 on my wife's car.

Ok. Mine is for a Highlander, so seems suitable.
Thanks.
