Many opinions on snow tire brands here. I plan to get Nokian Hakkapeliitta 1 this year. I got stuck in my driveway too many times last year (steep, long grade with turns). Had good luck with Pirelli Ice & snows, not so good luck with Dunlop Winter Sport, sort of a hybrid snow tire, weak. Get some chains too.
