They may not look as cool or ride as well as Performance Winter / Snow tires or Studless Ice and Snow tires, but they get the job done better than an All-Season Tire. They are Studdable Winter / Snow tires. You can stud them or leave the studs out, but if you choose to have them studded Tire Rack will stud them for $15 per tire.  Let's look at the top two economical choices within the Studdable Winter / Snow tire category.
