What winter tires to use?

The eagle ultra 245/55r18's seem to be rare and last time I checked didn't show up on tire rack.

I run the Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread. I have been very happy with them in snow and ice. I actually leave them on year round now. My car is AWD and I haven't tried them on a FWD. The last set I bought (about a year ago), I had trouble finding them. I don't know what the replacement is.

2012 Taurus FWD
I Just put on some new Cooper Evolution Winters (225/65/17) And i love them. Plus they have a $50 rebate with them right now that I didn't even know until I bought them so even cheaper then I thought. Had some 3+ old tires from when i bought the car so i got stuck in the yard on the first MN snow fall this year. One week later I got my winters put on, and wow cant stop me now. First winter with this tires so i cant say anything about how long they will last but for the price they do a really good job and they are quite.

When I drove my 2007 Civic Si in Korea, I had Bridgestone Blizzaks on it for winter driving. If I had to get winter tires again for my Taurus, I'd probably end up getting them again.

Bridgestone Blizzaks. I’ve used the on all my cars, and I get a lot of snow. Pricey but worth it.
