Looking at winter tires for our '12 OB. We live in MN & we know the Conti's do not hold up in the snow & ice the way we would like (we have a new 16-year-old driver - nuf said.) Going over some of the postings about winter tires & looking through reviews on tirerack.com, we have narrowed it down to the Bridgestone Blizzaks & the Michelin X-Ice tires. I would love to hear input on these (or others if you have a good experience with something else) from fellow OB drivers. We are leaning towards the X-Ice XI2's (don't know enough about the I3's), but have personal friends that swear by the Blizzaks. Thoughts?
