I haven't bought witer tires for several years, and haven't been keeping up on the latest developments since around the turn of the century. At that time, the Blizzak multi-cell compound was the latest thing. I also remember that the "good" part of the tread was only the first 50% of the depth. Is this still an issue with winter tires made in the last 4 years? I'm looking at getting a used set this time around, and so I don't want to get something with 60% tread life left only to find there's really only 10% left.
