Unless you drive on ice or are up in the mountains all the time you don't need studs, and even the worst winter tire is 100x better than the best all season tire. As for the width of tire, its better to be tall and narrow to allow the tire to cut into the snow to give you traction where as a wide tire tend to sit on top (think of how a snow shoe works) so if the price is right and the tire fits i say go for it.
edit: i just noticed you're in MTL, i'm sure you are aware that you must have winter tires on your vehicle in quebec, but afaik
LT tires are legal in the winter. Most of my buddy's run Yokohama Geolander A/T-S and are happy with them, but they aren't dedicated snow tires.
One man's anarchy is another mans revolution. Just depends on what end of the rifle you're looking at.
99 ranger xlt, 2.5l 5spd. Its tiny, slow, has plenty of body mods thanks to the previous Asian owner and I love it.
