What winter tires do you use?
I usually use Sailun Ice Blazer WST1 (studdable). I used to use Gislaved NordFrost tires but found that the Sailun tires performed pretty much just well for less than half the cost. I've run them on 4 different vehicles with no issues at all.
On pure ice, the Sailun tires don't have quite the same from a dead stop amount of grip, but braking, predictability, hydroplane resistance and handling are pretty much just as good.
When I bought my Genesis (very recently) it came with winters which are Nankang Snow Viva SV-2 which I just found out are "all weather" tires. I'll see how they do but, I'll most likely go back to the Sailuns.

Don't forget to put 160-200 pounds of weight in the trunk when snow comes. Helps a lot.

I have Blizzak WS80 and put four (40 pounds each) bags of water softener salt in the trunk for weight. Then when spring comes I put that salt in the brine tank.

I'm going to try to find sand bags. I don't like the idea of rust causing substances in my trunk lol

What are you going to do with those sand bags when spring comes?


It's quit the opposite. It prevents rust. :giggle:

I'm a photographer so I'd use the sand bags to anchor my light stands when shooting outdoors.

Ah, water softener pellets. Thought you mentioned salt, hence salt = cause of rust.
