I was all on board for the Blizzak WS 80s until I found out about their special compound wearing out after 50%. The X Ice I-3 are very comparable to the Blizzaks but the blizzaks wear out much faster than the i3s.

If I can source an Ontario Nokian retailer, I will go with the HKPT R2s otherwise I will probably get the X Ice I-3s.
