My father in law wants to know the best idea for winter tires. He was thinking about getting studded fronts or would chains be better?

we get black ice all the time in CT, and the best precaution is to just drive slower when its around freezing.

I'm just going with some Dunlop M3's. I've heard they're great, so thats my recommendation, along with paying attention to the temperature.

Why is that? I see that stock size (215/50-17) have disappeared from Tire Rack... is that because they're greatly in demand or because they're discontinued? That was my first choice just from browsing, may have to fall back to fighting local winter rush for Nokians.

They've most likely been sold out for the season, since Tirerack had them listed in late October...

Crap, yes, didn't move soon enough (but didn't know my 6 was getting demoted to winter duty until almost November!) Tire Rack finally sent me a note to confirm they're out of Winter Sport 3 in 215-50/17.

So what if you already have a set and destroy one? :headscrat:

I'm away for another week or so, so I'm hoping everyone ELSE has gotten their tires taken care of before I go looking for Nokians... shops were turning people away by 9AM a few weeks ago.
