Fellow drivers, it's that time of year again! I've already put my winter tires on, but for those who don't have a set for their vehicle, I wanted to pass on this year's Consumer Search review! I found it very helpful for last year's purchase.
Michelin X-Ice Xi2
Best winter tire
Superior grip on ice and snow
Low rolling resistance means better gas mileage
Poor wet- and dry-road grip in some tests
General Altimax Arctic
"Budget snow tire"
Impressive on icy, snowy and wet roads
Unimpressive on dry roads
Less ice grip than Michelin X-Ice Xi2
Nokian Hakkapeliitta 5
Studded snow tire
Great on snow and ice
Studded tire for cars, SUVs, minivans and light trucks
