Default Whats the difference?PA2~Pzero Nero M+S

OK, I'm in Southern New Jersey - we get Ice, little snow usually(now that I said that a blizzard(Nor'Easter) is forming) and temps can be all over the board from Oct - April. I plan on running my summers from 5/1 to 9/30. Winter tire opinions have been all over the board between these two -

Pirelli Pzero Nero M+S - All season

Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 - Winter Performance

Can I expect, since our weather does allow for warmer dry days, to have the PA2's tread life to shorten? I lean toward the Pirelli's for the dry cold days but the PA2's for the icy - snow ones. Whats the scoop? My third option was actually Falken ZE-512's.

bump, nobody? Can I expect better ice - snow grip from the PA2's but more dry weather wear?

If you see a lot of snow and ice, I would get the PA2s. Those, along with the Bridgestone Blizzak LM22s and LM25s, and the Dunlop Winter Sport M2s and M3s are great performance winter tires. I have the LM22s and they are great tires....I do a lot of highway driving. If the temps are pretty low, you'll be fine....but if it's hot out, I wouldn't run your winters....

The Pilot Alpin PA2 is a true winter tire which will offer a huge amount of snow and ice traction and when compared to any all-season tire the difference is monumental
