Nexen Winguards, size 235/55R17, from Simple Tire. They are replacing my old, mostly-worn Winterforces.

Let us know how they do. I've had Winterforces and Blizzaks in the past and been amazed by the performance of both.

Good stuff.

I depend on AWD to get me moving and the copious amount of salt and sand to keep my vehicle on the roads of New England.

Fine so far, though haven't actually had enough snow to know how they work yet.
