I just cruised through all the threads on tires but am looking for some specific info here. Does anyone have any real world knowledge about the Blizzak DM-Z3 versus the newer Michelin X-Ice? I need a snow and ice tire for going up into the mountains for snow sports but also need a good rain tire for Seattle winters. Blizzaks have a good rep but I can't find much info on the X-Ice and tirerack has no data on it yet. Any opinions would be appreciated. I'm assuming I'd put on the 215/70/16 (my stock tires are the 235/60/16's). I'm looking for some more height without sacrificing snow/rain traction...
