Michelin M/S 2s in winter conditions
 
Do any of you with Michelin M/S 2s and living in the northern half of the U.S. or in Canada keep them on year-round? I know they are rated quite well for snow and ice, but I'm interested in hearing about your actual handling experiences with them before I spend the money on a new set of Blizzaks.

I just traded in the Latitude Tours for the LTX M/S2's. The plan is to keep them on all year. The Tours did not do badly during the one month of winter I had the vehicle for last winter, so these should do better from what I have read on the web. Go take a look at them in a store. If you do no more off roading than dirt roads and fields like me, they seem to be right for highway and snow if you do not want dedicated winter tires.
We dodged the bullet on this weekend's snow storm... just about 3 inches, all on the grass. Very elevation dependent. 1000 feet got about a foot or more. 2000 feet got up to 30 inches.
