Question anyone have experience with these tires?

-Bridgestone Potenza G009
-BF goodrich Traction T/A
-Goodyear comfortred?

I got a price from a couple of places and the goodyears are overpriced in my opinion (119 bucks installed, balanced etc) I checked out tirerack for reviews but it's hard to compare a camaro owner's review to what I need the tires for. I want something that is all season with good snow traction since i live on top on a mountain (anything better than my RE92 will do.) I do not really care about road noise or dry traction since I do not push my car that hard. Does anyone have an experience with any of these three in the snow? (I will be saving about 30 bucks a tire if I do not get the goodyears) Does anyone think the goodyears are worth that much more? On tirerack they have about the same rating for the snow.

Also, is it proper to negotiate the price with a tire place? I have gone to Goodyear for about 8 years now for oil changes, minor repairs (belts, tune-ups,etc) and tires and I would like to keep giving them my business, but if they want that much more for these tires I have no choise but to go to the other tire shop down the street which offers the other brands of tires mentioned.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

My roomate has the BF Goodrich Traction T/A on his Corolla... I gotta say, he drove uncomfortably fast in real snow (i live in the woods, our roads aren't well plowed), and those tires did a great job.

Thanks, I think I'm going with the Potenza's I'm saving about 35 bucks a tire if I get these instead of the Goodyears. I checked out the BFGoodrich site and they did not offer the Traction T/As in my size anymore, so I guess theey are out of the running. From what I read the two tires (goodyear and bridgestone), are similar in the snow.

Just had some G009's put on yesterday.. they feel pretty nice, and am looking forward to this winter

Went with them because my local Firestone place had a sale on them for $79 each....
