2013 snow tires!

I am beginning my search for new winter shoes for my 06GT. Can't decide between Blizzak WS70's or LM60's. opinions?

I live in Nebraska so we get some pretty good snow in the winter. I have Blizzak and about 120lbs of sand in my trunk and i do better than some front wheel drive cars. We had a snow storm durning school once and like 5 people crashed in their awd and fwd cars and i made it home just fine. Then again that could be because im a better driver but still i would go with blizzak

I'd get a beater truck. That way you can keep your car out of the snow

Yeah a beater is looking better and better. It'll cost about the same for a beater as it would for those blizzaks.

I wish i could get another car for the winter but my parents didn't want to have another car sitting around so they got me snow tires instead. If you do end up doing the snow tires i would recommend some waterless car wash to wash all the crap off during the winter if you're like me and don't like paying for a car washes

Getting a winter beater that has terrible tires isn't really a "better option" imo.

I'm in the same situation, and as much as I'd like a beater, it's no where near as cheap as $500 for blizzaks thrown on my stock rims. Plus insurance, and the fact that it might need repairs and winter tires itself.

Thoughts?
