I have 2010 Edge Limited FWD and need to put some new tread on it. Live in upstate new yotk so looking for something that will be decent in the snow. Current tires are Falken that were on when we bought and they were really bad in snow last year. Any reccomendations would be great.

 

Thank You

I'd suggest snow specific tires as the improvement is dramatic. I run BFG winter slaloms.

 

All seasons are really only 3 season.

Only in Northern climates.  Down South they're 4 seasons.

For snow only, I would go with Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V1.
For all season, Bridgestone's Dueler H/L 422 Ecopiate (what I'm currently running).

Bridgestone Dueler HL ecopia 422 might be a good over all choice.  For real snow traction go with the Blizzak DM-V2

Was interested in reading more about the DM-V2 tires, approx outer 50% of the tire is a softer, quieter, more "rubbery" type of rubber (quieter and better traction). When this wears off, the tire will get noisy and not have as good traction. That's when I trade, hate noisy tires.

Ergo, you only are getting approx. 55% of its rated tread, which could be as little as say, 25% of its rated milage (picked a number out of thin air, exactly how many miles are in first 55% of tread depth? Remember that the outer 55% is a softer rubber that will wear faster.)
Probably would still be usable tires, just ride harder and a lot more noisy.

I've suspected other tires of doing this. Had a set of Michelin's that got real noisy and hard riding when 50% worn. Dealer told me the soft wear layer had worn off.

The DM-V2 must be the V1 replacment, hence the reason why the V1's are marked down $40 less.

They do get noisy.  I however used them three seasons for an approximate 60k miles.  I only used them Dec through March each time.

I have done 30,000 in one year for work, but that's my sole claim to fame.
