    I know all to well.. Used to live in Duluth I live in Cloquet now... I work in the Minnesota Power building down town... I would go with a nice set of Bridgestone Dueller AT revo 2s.. they cost a few bucks but last 60-70K miles... And ride great, and will handle snow better than just about anything other than a dedicated snow tire.
