Good snow traction in an All-Season tire?
Having spent the last several Northern Indiana on dedicated snow tires, All-Season tires just aren't good enough. Once you go Blizzak (or X Ice2) you can't go back.
Well, what about a Louisville driver with Summer Performance tires? Does he or she really need a snow tire for a few snow storms?
Dedicated snow tires might be overkill. A good choice to consider would be the Continental Extreme Contact DWS.
Its predecessor, the Continental Extreme Contact did surprising well (for an All-Season tire) on our snow-covered test track. The Extreme Contact DWS should have it's predecessor's snow prowess and did amazingly well in wet and try testing. See test results here:
