Continental Replacement Tires

I'm getting a set of replacement tires for my 2015 Traverse....There are 2 i like and I'm looking for a tire that will do well in some sloppy snow...I live in a far suburb near Chicago...I dont off road but I appreciate an aggressive tire . What I am deciding between are Continental terrain ht or Continental sure contact LX...will either of these b good enough in snow? How do i choose the one that fits me best??

I'd start by reading reviews/tests, like on TireRack.com

2020 Traverse LT

This... check Discount Tire, Tire Buyer, etc. to get as many reviews as you can.

I'm gonna need new tires in the spring and I'm strongly leaning towards the new Uniroyals since they will be hundreds of dollars cheaper and are getting rave reviews... figured in 6 months if people still love them through the winter and after putting some miles on them I will take the dive.

@cintocrunch, which Uniroyals are you referring to? I'd like to look into them myself. Thanks

I believe this is the one...

The BJs wholesale stocks them near me. Most sites I've been on have them highly rated. But consumer reports gave them bad ratings (whatever their opinions are worth nowadays, I've been losing my faith in them for car related items and their clear favoritism). That's why I figured I'd let them go through the winter and see what people were saying. My second choice is probably the new BFG Advantage Sport LT, it's getting great reviews as well and has the 3 peak rating.

I have not had good luck with Continentals. They seem to get hard and spin in wet once the first soft layer wears off ~ 15-20,000 miles. In my opinion anyway. I've taken them off every car I bought which had them. Ive been replacing them with Firestone / Bridgestone. I have Deuler's on my 2017 Traverse and I really like them.
