Gary,

I am probably still getting the M3's but this tire is so cheap its hard not to take a look at it. I know its they are totally different tires and you cant compare them but, how do they compare to say the WS-50's? I mean $112 thats a huge difference when the rest are closer to $150.

Thanks!

The DS2 is a Q rated, low temp ice compound much like the Blizzak WS-50, so it is quite a bit different from the winter sport M3...better in snow but much worse in dry handling. Think of the DS-2 pretty close to the WS-50, but a noticable step down in dry traction/cornering from the even the WS-50.

Great thanks! I think I am still going with the M3, since NJ doesnt get alot of snow days, and I did ok on all seasons last year. I would think this would be a nice step up from the all seasons.
