Wow, you dont give us much info to go on. How much is cheap? Why dont you go into the for sale section and look up used Blizzaks that people are selling. :idea:

sorry on lack of info.
i have a 02 gs sporty.
stock rims.
just looking for 2 tires to last till spring.
and was hoping to get some for 100 a piece or less.
and i dont really need snow tires as i live in ga.
christmas is likely the only time the car will see snow.
i drive a truck otr so i really only drive one weekend a month.
and id rather just get the advans and be done but,
according to yokohama dropping below 14 degrees the rubber gets permanently damaged.

so i guess im looking for decent cheap all seasons

When in GA does it get below 14 degress? Also, if your not going to drive it but once a month, keep your advans in the house. 100 bucks a tire, hell thats expensive for 16 inch wheels. You could go to Sears and get some cheapo's for like 40 bucks a piece mounted.

well i live way up north ga
and we actually get snow.
and im not allowed to keep tires in the house.
i live with a friend and his parents (dont laugh rent is 150 a month)
my plan is come spring ill get lighter 17" rims with the advans
but for now.
i need something that can take a little snow
and not blow up on the trip.
the proxes did me good but the cut scares me.

and i dunno if i could trust 40 dollar tires.
it may just be me but in my mind 40 dollars does not inspire trust.
i am currently searching tire rack to find somethin.

I live in the great lakes snow belt and have rocked 40 dollar tires on my winter car for 3 winters now. Typically a snow storm up here is 12-20 inches and its not just once a year, but multiple times. I got them from a Goodyear shop but they are some knock off brand. I bet if you found something similar, it would get you thru 1 Georgia winter.
