So how much difference can you have with tread depth??

Also, snow/ice tires are a lot cheaper (well... usually, not always around USMB) than having to replace the car. I had cheap all season junk on the car, and it was still the best handling vehicle I've driven in the snow. After several cars zipped across my path on the highway (from the other side, totally out of control), I realized that it's not ME I'm worried about, it's being able to get out of the way of a random bozo sliding freely - I'd rather throw my car into a ditch than get slammed into (and I'm pretty confident I can get it out of the ditch anyway), but that requires traction.
Enter the set of Blizzaks. The only way I can describe them is grip-n-go - I can get significant lateral forces cornering in the ice and snow now.

keep tread depth as close as possible on same axle: fronts the same right and left...rears the same...
yes, ideally you would like them all to be the same, but real world doesnt always allow it...needed tires a while back, but couldnt afford to go all around at once. bought a pair, had them mounted up front, about a month later had enough to buy another pair, had the first set rotated to back and new set up front...works just fine.
