    I've been running Blizzaks on my last few vehicles and I expect I will be doing the same on the Micra. The tires perform well out here in our NB weather and we have a really good local dealer that treats folks fairly and gives back to the community.

    Out here in Vancouver you see nothing but all wheel drive vehicles outfitted with worn all-season tires in the ditch. And even as you help them out of the ditch they try to tell you that they do not need winter tires because they have all-wheel drive... A bit ironic isnt it? Ask your self, is it cheaper buy good tires or having to deal with a preventable accident. Ultimately, find a proper winter dedicated tire thats within your budget.

    Ive been fitting most of my past vehicles with non-studed Nokian tire. My subaru was the only one I got studded tires for. The only. Reason I did is because I was driving on the Coquihalla hwy daily. (for people not familiar with this road, its constantly featured on the show: highway to hell). That said, I think studded tires are over kill for most people. They do perform best on ice, but non studed versions do better on snowy, dry, and wet condition. Studded tires are much louder and in some cities, many parkades will not allow you to park there if you have studs
    +1 For Nokian. I have my RSI's going on next week. Had to order new 14' rims for them. (210shipped out of montreal)

    I got Michelin Xi3's on the stock 16" SR rims. They work OK. Make a bit of a funny noise at around 70-80 km on a flat road due to rubber whine, but not bad otherwise.

    I have a quote from the dealership for Pirelli Winter Ice Zero FR. Going to shop around but I know that winters are going to be a must in my area. Good driving skill doesn't beat slush and ice and other drivers.

    At the end of 2017 winter I ended up getting Nordic winter tires from Canadian Tire, they're made by Goodyear. I paid $338 for all for tires. Never had any complaints.
