It is not too soon to be thinking of the winter season and winter / snow tires. Bridgestone has come out with its next generation of winter / snow tires called the Blizzak WS70. The WS70 has all of the positive features of the WS60 and improves upon overall traction. The tire still uses Bridgestone's Multicell compound but features an enhanced tire design.
We recently took the tires for a spin on the local ice rink and found that the tire had excellent ice traction and very good handling characteristics while being considerably quiet for a winter / snow tire.
