I have Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice tires on the back now, but they're almost bald. Didn't wanna invest in brand new tires since I'm planning to sell my 'bird soon. I just got 2 used Bridgestone Winterforce tires for the back of my 'bird. They're about 50% tread. Haven't had them mounted yet. Anybody run these tires in the winter? Wondering how they are. They're 225/70 - 15. I run all seasons up front.

I run 215/70 -15's in the back. They're pretty decent for grip. Made it up the steep hill i live on, on several occasions. Ice and about 5 inches of snow. Non studded. Not bad for the price. ABS Traction/Assisted car.

Got them on all fours (I have to add; while Bridgestone does own Firestone, Winterforce tires are actually Firestone - Bridgestone's snow tire is the Blizzak) just this year for the Cougar. Haven't had any snow here yet (knock on wood) but in dry weather, they are a comfortable ride and fairly responsive on dry pavement. Haven't hydroplaned through puddles, but they are a bit noisy. I'm expecting good things out of them, most reviews have been very positive about them.

Had them mounted Friday. Didn't really feel any difference with them, but haven't had any snow in Jersey yet. They're a little bit loud, but no more than the Good Year Ultra Grip Ice tires were. Terminator93 - you're right - they're firestones. Hopefully they got some of the Blizzak technology in 'em! Can't wait for snow now.
