Default Snow Tires

Hi there. My wife traded in her V60 and got a XC40. We drive to the snow a lot and want to put snow tires on. I'm curious what other folks are using for non-studded snow tires?

Thanks. Iím also looking at studless Blizzaks.

Any tips for install? Did you go to dealer or another tire company? Iím thinking of ordering from TireRack and installing at WheelWorks.

depends where you live - if you are planning to keep spare rims then you can pretty much go to any tire shop for mounting and balancing. If you swap tires each season, then I'd look for a shop that has specials - here in New England I use Town Fair Tire who offer a package.

Thanks again. I'm not planning on owning separate rims so will look for a shop that can swap the tires on and off the same pair of rims.
