Hey all! FYI, I live in Plattsburgh NY, an hour from Montreal, Canada. Since my TA is my only car, I have to put snows on. After much research, I bought a studded tires from Toyo, the Observe G3 Ice. Just over a $1000 mounted, balanced and tax. We just had 7" of snow/sleet. The tires performed very well. If you are in the same situation, you should definitely consider them. Happy Thanksgiving!
