My all season tires plain out suck in the winter. I'm finally willing to pay for some winter tires. I have a 4 door F-150, run 4 sandbags in the bed during winter. I run 4wd all winter, but that only helps so much on turns and none for stopping. I commute only ~20 minutes from Hillside area to downtown, but plan on longer drives to snowmachine and ice fish. I'm looking at the normal selection; Blizzaks, Nokkian Hak 8's, what else? Thoughts on studs vs siped? Didn't see a whole lot of discussion on this topic on here.
