Is there really a market here? Especially with all the severe weather rated AT's out there...

I might be interested in them. I want a load rated tire but with better traction on ice.

I was interested in getting Blizzak LT's last November, but there was no such thing.
I ended up buying a set of LT winter tires from General, and have been driving on them for 3 months now. They work fairly well, but aren't as good as I'm used to with Blizzaks on my Camaro.

I looked at the Blizzak W965 last fall looking for winter tires for my 2500 Suburban. There aren't many options in 265/75R16 LRE. I was turned off by the fact that it seemed the W965 hadn't been updated since it was introduced many many years ago. I ended up buying Goodyear's Ultra Grip® Ice WRT (Light Truck). They had the right size and load rating and the price wasn't bad. Had this new tire been out last fall, I would have looked closely at them. The Goodyear's seem to be pretty good.
