It depends. I'm not familiar with that model bike. What size are your wheels?

It also depends on if you're riding on or off-road, and if on-road, whether you'll be waiting for the plows and salt trucks or not.

All that said, the best brand is Nokian. http://www.suomityres.fi/winter.html They cost more than other winter tires, but they last a lot longer. There are models to fit your bike and intended use.

Peter White Cycles in NH is the best-known Nokian dealer. http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/studdedtires.asp

Speedgoat.com and ebikestop.com tend to have better prices, though.

i am looking for something which will handle anything from deep snow, ice, slush and crappy road conditions if that helps. i'm not sure of the tire size since i replaced my old ones with slicks for riding on pavement. i am looking towards riding this winter to get out of the house....
thanks

I think the Schwalbe Marathon Winters look real nice and could be a good fit. What size are your slicks?
