Altimax Arctic with studs....no going back to non studded winter tires and refuse to pay double for Hakkapakkalitta's or whatever. For historical purposes, the non studded I have used have run the gamut and Xice/Blizzaks were the best back in the day.

I do not hear what you type!

Studs are awfully noisy, at least from the outside.
Hard to imagine that they provide decent comfort on anything but deep snow.

Just my opinion.

Use COOPER Evolution Winter w/ studs for both cars . Make a difference on our 30 degree sloped driveway when covered with ice . It's the descent that's the biggest concern . They're very reasonably priced with studs . Rebate covers most of the cost for studs . They also have many deep sipes close to base of tire . Another bonus . Rated T too .

I've got these on my Odyssey. They've been fine in light and deep snow and were super cheap. They're also the loudest tires I've ever had over 60 MPH, and I've run plenty of different snow tires before.

The noise levels definitely remind me of the Winterforce I used to use on the Focus. Not too terrible on the Forester, though. But noisier than others.
