I did this to my Echo and it was totally awesome in all depths of snow. Also did this on my wife's Corolla and she had absolutely no problems last winter with 180 inches of snow last season. I'm thinking that the Prius should be pretty good in the snow since all the weight is centered over the front and rear axles. I think they would be a good investment in NH.
Thanks, lw, I'll look into these tires.lw said:I put Bridgestone Blizzaks on my 03 Prius and have been more than pleased. We are having a big snow year here in Anchorage and I'm really impressed with the traction. Hope this helps. Larry
Thanks, Jerry P. I'll be taking the Prius into the mountains pretty regularly this year, so I'm keen on gleaning as much info as I can before making a decision.Jerry P said:My snow tires are Mastercraft Ice Grips....apparently made by General Tire since that is the dealership where I got them. Nothing overly special about them except that the tread is very aggressive. We do not deal with a lot of ice here but LOTS of 6-12 inch overnight snowfalls, at least until Lake Erie freezes. The 4 tires cost me $285 total, mounted, balanced, etc. Not too bad in my opinion. Had a heavy snowfall Saturday morning and the Prius had no problem with it at all.
