The only winter tires i'm aware that they have are the Blizzaks, just like what @DBlock mentioned.

I see that they have 3 different types, entry-level, performance and commercial (trucks).

They don't have them as run flats and thankfully they don't, I hate run flats.

Do you really ever get flat tires in the snow/ice?

Yea, snow and ice destroys concrete and form pot holes and other things could go wrong that could cause flat tires as well...

I've noticed that Goodyear and Michelin have both done away with most if not all of their Winter Rated All-Seasons. Call me misanthropic but I think they're just trying to sell more tires...

I wouldn't blame them on doing that, they are some of the legendary tire brands that many people are loyal to, with that people wouldn't have much of a problem with getting winter and/or summer/all-season tire sets

yes they do, cost and time. With a good winter rated allseason coupled with patience and caution you'll make it through the season without incident. We've been doing that for years now...

Exactly.

Them cutting those out work beautifully for people who wanted them especially at a time like now with a growing number of compacts and with that those same people looking for a cheap way to go about driving safely under those conditions. I can imagine a lot of them would only want to stick to one set of wheels and tires rather than two different sets.

So you're happy they no longer sell Winter Rated All seasons?
