I had the Goodyear Ultra Grips. I LOVED them. Loved 'em so much in fact that I used them year round-- two sets of them in three years (8 tires x $45... you do the math) I can't afford that anymore...

I had a set of 175/70/13 and a set of 185/70/13. Both on the stock wagon wheels. Oh man, I loved those tires...

I've used the Cooper WeatherMaster S/T2 (unstudded) for years, great traction, good life and affordable. I just bought a set of 195/60R15 for the T-Leg at $47.00 a piece.

I've run Yokohama Guardex K2 F720s, unstudded, and (what I currently have) Hankook Zovac WP401s, studded. Loved both. Sadly, the Yokos aren't being made anymore.

Here's the Hankook tread pattern:

I used 185/70r13 eurowinters from les schwab for four seasons, really liked
them alot! Last winter was thier last, and I ran them all spring, summer,
and fall until they were bald....

Had a set of new 165/80r13 goodyear ultra grips given to me (free is good right?) and I'm still geting used to them, there doesn't seem to be nearly
as much traction as my old tires had. I don't think the goodyears are big
enough for my 93 Loyale.
I'll probably go back to the eurowinters next year, however those coopers
look pretty good too.

Cheers,
Chris

I use the Cooper weather mater plus but sadly they are discontinued.. luckily I still have another winter or two of tread life if I remove them in late Feb. What I don't like about them is that I got the 185/80/13s. I like the extra clearance and the overall look, but they feel a little unstable on coners.. So the next set of tires I get will be closer to stock.

I use to run the WeatherMaster Plus, the S/T2 is the replacement and the traction is as good or better.

I run Nokian Hakkipellita tires. I forget if I have the 10's or the 1's... one is slightly better than the other but they both are great!

Aside from mine being studded the wintermaster plus do double duty for little ud fun so that is anotherfactor for me... they gotta have deep lugs (well deep for street tires anyway)
