    18 GT Snow Tires

    Totally depends how much snow is going to be on the ground in your part of the world. I think that winter tires are pretty important for people living in Canada. Almost half the ear here there is the potential for snow to be on the road.

    I just got back from a week skiing in south eastern B.C. Slick roads most of the way. Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 tires were superb. Highly recommended. I know, on warm roads they wear like butter. But, they sure grip surfaces that are too slick to walk on.

    About ABS...it reacts to the traction it gets from the tires. If the tires don't slip, ABS doesn't activate. If the tires slip before the driver expects them to do that, the ABS activates before the drive expects it to activate. If the tires don't grip,you got nothing.

    I've only been on snow once with the OE Falken tires, and they were OK.
