Default Cooper LifeLiners

Hey iv'e got a set of Cooper Lifeliners on my 2000 SSEi and they are very good in the snow the traction control doesnt kick on that much suprisingly even on really icy days. they arent cheap tires though i think when we had them put on they were around 700 dollars but they are excellent handling when its dry out, theyre great at directing water away from the tire. Theyre worth the price and they wear well... the tire are really wide and have a nice profile, theyre not too low but not huge they look nice on the 17" chrome wheels

I used Brigstone Blizacs on my bonneville, even though they had 25% tred remaining they sure did a good job on the snow and ice, compared to my Uniroyal Tiger Paw touring tire...with those my ABS and Traction really got a hard workout!

I just got a set of BF Goodrich Traction T/A'* put on. They were pretty cheap and should last a long time (rated for 70,000 miles.) I'm kind of curious how they handle in the snow and slush too. They replaced Goodyear Regatta 2'*. They tires were absolutely horrible. They wore really quickly and I had absolutely no traction. Even when it was just sprinkling out they would hydroplane.
