I need to change my tires to snow or all season tires. Have anyone changed theirs yet? Which brand do you recommend?

Nokian Hakkapeliitta are great. I have them on my Subby and with AWD, it's like driving on dry asphalt!

Check the wheels and tires forum. There's a lot of info there.

Heard the Bridgestone Blizzaks are really good snow tires. All season tires aren't going to do much good in the snow.

If you will be doing snow driving, protect your investment by getting snow tires.
It is recommended to get 16" rims/tires dedicated snow set and 17" summer set for better handling.

Where are you located? That will affect which tire is better for you. I just traded out the stock summers for all seasons a few weeks ago...and I LIKE 'em! Michelin Pilot Sport

If you're anywhere near the Montreal area, I've got a set

I just gave my IS back at the end of it's lease and have a set of the RAV4 16" rims with Nokian Hakkapeleta NRW tires if you are interested. I paid $1450 Canadian and would happily sell them for $500.

Either way, I highly recommend the Nokians, on a car like the IS it pay to get the best winter tires. I gleefully remember getting up a hill past a Blazer (with bad tires I guess) during a storm last winter.

I am located in Indiana, not a lot of snow but icy at times. Seems like the Nokian Hakkapeliitta and the Bridgestone Blizzak are pretty good. Thank you for the info.

Are the Michelin Pilot Alpin good all-around snow tire? It doesn't snow that often in MD/VA and I need something that's able to take some wear. I was wanting the Dunlop M2 but Costco is only willing to special order Michelin tires. Any advice?
