I have read reviews that tested used Blizzaks and were very unfavourable, but who knows. The newer Blizzaks may be less sensitive to this than older models or vice versa. Who knows?

Anyway, with any winter tire, you really want lots of tread depth. I was surprised to find almost all Michelin tires start at the same depth, whether is is XIce or Pilot Super Sport!

I would suggest if you are buying used, if you can, find a set already on SAAB rims, and fairly new in age and miles with lots of tread depth - measure it. If you are in a city (Canadian city? am I right?) there should be many tires available and I had little trouble finding a SAAB set that was decent.

If you live in a place that allows studs - I think they are great. If not, and you are not looking used, I would look at Nokian Hakka R2. I have R's and actually I'm not super impressed with them, but R2's have silica in them (grit) and are supposed to perform more like studded tires. Good luck finding them used (only out 1 year now), but that is what I will try next. Any of the Hakkas are good. I found the Michilin Primacy Alpin ok, good on the highway if you get less snow.
