Default Firestone Winterforce tires - any good?

Just wondering if the Firestone Winterforce tires are any good. How are they in snow, dry pavement, rain, etc.? I can get them for $75 ea. mounted and balanced. Any help is appreciated.

they are a basic winter tire and will be better than an allseason tire, but there are much better winter tires out there for the money.

What better tire could I get for $75? I don't think there are any for that price.

no there aren't. there are better snow tyres for more money. if i didn't get a good deal on Hakka Qs, i'd have picked up the Winterforce as i can swap snow tyres/wheels and allseasons/wheels back forth pretty easily. if thats not an option, then spend the money for a blizzak lm-22/25 or M3.
