The first snow is headed our way to Chicago this weekend. I'm about to order Bridgestone Blizzaks DM-V2 tires for my Evoque, but was wondering what other members have gone with and provide recommendations / alternatives.

Chicago winters can be brutal. Previously I was able to get away with the all-seasons, but after busting my wheel, bearing and tire on my G35xS last year (slid into a curb at slow speed in a parking lot - over a Grand in repairs) last winter I swore to never go another winter without the proper winter tire.

I second the Scorpion Winters but with 235/60/R18's. Sidewalls are your friend esp with your notorious Chicago potholes. Also save yourself some cash this way.

Nice! My wife has Pirelli Scorpion All-Seasons on her vehicle, and they made a huge difference all-around from what she had previously. Definitely send in another reply/review when you have the chance to test it this winter.

I went ahead and ordered the Blizzaks which were a little less expensive then the Pirelli's. The DM-V2 is their newer model, but from all the postive reviews I read on the discontinued DM-V1, they should work out just fine for me. They're getting installed first thing tomorrow and will get tested tomorrow night as we are expecting 4-7 inches.

I know this is way after this post was started but in case anyone else reads through.... We live in the Colorado mountains (7,200 feet) the "highway" to town is 2 lanes only and15 miles of winding canyon roads which are almost always snow packed in the winter. I've been using Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-1 and later, DMV-2 studdless snow tires for years now and whole heartedly recommend them. I have a set for every one of our vehicles.
