Which Blizzack?

Tirerack has a winter package with the DM-V1 (255/55-18), but I see other people running the LM-60 tires. What are the pros/con for each? Are the LM-60 that much better for almost twice the cost of the DM-V1?

LM60 is a performance winter tire. If you don't get much snow and ice where you are, then this is the tire for you. You can still enjoy hard cornering on those cold dry days.

The other tire is a studless ice/snow tire. Its softer, but it will give better traction in deep snow and on ice. The downside is that its more squirmy, and the limits aren't as high for cornering etc.

I run the LM60 in Toronto since the streets here get plowed relatively quickly, and we don't often get deep snow. When I go further north on the secondary roads to go skiing, I sometimes wish I had the other tire though.

The LM60 are RFTs so they will be pretty expensive. I ordered the DM-V1s from Tirerack yesterday. After a lot of research and questions I think I made the right choice for me. I like that there is more tread depth and I didn't think I needed the RF since these are winter season only. They are supposed to be pretty good in wet/dry situations too so I'm pretty happy and trying my best to not revisit my choice lol.
