I found them frustrating, but not in the way you would think. I had to work really hard to get the car to misbehave in the snow. I still prefer my Hakka's but for the price the LM-60's are a really good tire. Supposedly the blizzaks don't do as well as they wear though compared to my beloved Hakkapelitas, but time will tell. They registered in at almost 12/32's when i gauged them, so they are pretty solid for now. I am really happy with the look of the wheels too on the car.

I snapped a quick pic while i was out looking for trouble, the main roads were clear at this point but the back roads (dirt and gravel ones mostly) had a nice bed of packed snow, and some powder here and there too. I stopped for coffee with my snow crew (equipped with shovels, which did get used at one point, not worth discussing, but anyway).

Those look like wheels to me.

Not bad in general. They look great for winter duty.

Man that car is a twin of mine. Nice!

I got the Blizzak LM60s as well, and I have been very happy so far. The new 9-5 is an absolutely awesome snow car.
