#36 of 42 Mazda Protege: Winter Tires

I have been driving on my BFG WInter Slalom tires for the last 8 winters and was planning to replace them at the end of this year. The Winter Slaloms are inexpensive have served me well (they look new after all this time) but I would be interested in hearing other suggestions.

I ran Hankook Winter ipike for the last couple of winters. They were about $85 I think. They work well and look pretty good still. I'll be keeping them when I sell my P5 and use them on my next car.
If you got a good 8 winters out of your current tires, and have no complaints, I'd stick with your BFG's.

Has anyone used Hankook W300's?
If so, are they worthwhile in deeper snow?

I'm not familiar with that tire but I would check Tire rack to see how people rated it. I by from Discount Tire though because of their location near me.

The Hankook ipike winter tires are very affordable even compared to my reasonably priced BFG Winter Slalom tires on which my P5 currently rides. Thanks Terry for the tip!

They are also relatively quite for a snow tire. Just make sure you don't buy the studded version. It took me awhile before I figured out there were two versions of the ipike. Some people would comment on how quiet they were and others would complain how noisy they were. I can't imagine that any studded tire would be quiet so I'm not sure why those that bought them would complain.
