    I have a Saturn SL2 and live in Manitoba, Canada. I wanted to find some
    inexpensive snow tires to install. Any recommendations? Can I just install
    snow tires in the front or do I really need all four done. Thanks

    Hi; I'm in NL. My recommendation would be to install four studded snow
    tires. I have bought Khumos for my Saturn in the past. They are relatively
    cheap and of reasonable quality. There are, of couse, better tires out
    there, but the Khumos perform reasonably well is the extreme cold like we
    have here - decent rubber compound. Personally, I wouldn't install just two
    winter tires, but I have seen it done.

    Also, MB is much flatter than NL so you may not need the studs out there
    like we do in the east.

    Wal-Mart is the cheapest, if price is what you are looking for. Canadian
    Tire is more, but probably better qualified, but I can't make judgment in
    Manitoba. All 4 is recommended, but depends on how bad your all-seasons are.
    The problem is the fronts can go bat-out-of-hell, but the rear can't keep up
    going around corners, so either you have to be quick to compensate for the
    back end slipping out, or slow down.
