especially for where you live in Rochester ( I used to live in Niagara falls and went skiing in Ellicottville consistently when I lived there) They do great in that really messy lake effect snow and slush. I now live in Northern British Columbia and I studded my firestones. This way I get the best of both worlds, great snow/slush traction due to the tread design and fantastic stopping power on Ice due to the studs.
I also highly recommend dropping down to a set of 17 steel rims. In Canada it actually worked out cheaper for me to buy a set of 17 rims and tires then to just buy a set of 20 tires.
I am finding the same but with the 17 pkg, I can't find a combo that will match my 20's in height.
I like the thoughts of 17's but don't like the thought of putting more miles on my truck than what I actually am.
