Micheline all-season tires - which one is best for winter?

I am going to buy a set of Micheline tires from costco this month
to replace my current tires which are almost worn out.

Just wondering which tires are most suitable for winter drive,

Michelin - Primacy™ MXV4® $147.99

Michelin - Pilot® Exalto® A/S $143.99

Michelin - Primacy™ MXV4® $131.99

My car is 04 Honda Civic LX.

I mainly drive locally and "slow" highways ( 404/dvp during rush hours).

None. Buy dedicated winter tires. Even the cheapest and worst winter tires will out-perform your all-seasons.

If you do want to get all seasons cheap, I suggest you stay away from Michelin. Their "cheap" tires ain't worth the cost. I suggest you look at the Yokohama Avid Envigor. Excellent tires for the price. I believe they do pretty well in winter as well, but again, can't be compared to dedicated winter tires.

I heard they were very bad in winter. Never had them, but I did have the Goodyear TripleTreds which I used year round.

Read the article, worse winter tire is still better than any all season tires.

Let's repeat, if you drive on snow/icy road, the stopping distance is way shorter than any all season tires and that distance is enough to save you a big accident.

Since your tires are worse out, just purchase 4 winter tires, mount it on rims and install in your car. local or hwy, you still need to stop and drive.
