Toyo not a bad choice either but more money.

Lol, you mean Toyo? I've got Toyo Observes on my Eclipse and they aren't great I have to say. Wheelspin is as much a part of my winter driving as breathing is.

Toyo has the all new Celsius tires. They suppose to be all season but a lot better on winter conditions then the regular AS and good in summer time. You get a 60k tire warranty so they should really go all year round without problems.

Everybody talks highly about them around my shop, and the price is not that bad. From my experience with Toyo tires, and what I see with the Celsius ones I would encourage everybody to take a close look at them.

Well, I guess the best way to go is with summer tires / winter tires ( I see Michelin has one of the longest warranties and if the price is not a problem then seems like a no brainer ) on two different sets of wheels so you could just swap them and keep the summer wheels spotless .

But then again, is it worth it? Not in my opinion :D

I don't trust A/S tires as far as I can roll them. Poor traction in the dry, poor in the wet, and atrocious in winter conditions. It's always best to get a dedicated summer/winter set of rubber if you live in an area that calls for them.

I'm running Michelin latitude touring tires on my escape. This will be the 3rd winter. Never had a problem.
