First time car owner. Can someone please tell me how to choose tires for my vehicle? I have a 2010 Honda Accord EX Sedan. How do I know which tires are compatible? Thanks!

Some of the best winter tires that you can buy with these rebates for your average daily driver, very generally speaking, are the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80, Continental WinterContact Si. and Michelin X-Ice Xi3.. If you're going to buy a winter tire, there's must be a reason for it, so I would go with any of many highly-rated tires out there. For the majority of Canadians, a good winter tire is the most crucial component in safe winter driving. Don't cheap out as there are some cheap "winter" tires out there that don't handle much better than an all-season tire in snow and ice. Also have a look at Nokian tires which are harder to find but always well-reviewed.

For me, it appears the WS80s are by far the cheapest of the bunch, $681 installed, with Costco warranty and service for my car. The X-Ice Xi3 is about $25 more per tire. The WinterContact Si are actually even more expensive in my area (and in Canada) compared to the other two. So, I've basically narrowed it down to two choices (WS80 and the Xi3) and did a lot of research on both:

What I've read is that WS80s are a bit softer while the latter is a little more performance oriented. Because they're soft, the WS80 will perform better in true winter conditions but may handle worse and wear much faster in a warm climate like Vancouver where it never really snows. I've also read that superior compound (multi-cell) that the WS80 uses wears down to a regular winter compound which makes the tire significantly worse at the halfway mark around 6/32's whereas the X-Ice Xi3 were designed with longevity in mind (and is one of very few winter tires that carry an industry-leading 60,000km treadlife warranty however difficult to claim it may be). Apparently, the X-Ice Xi3s at 4/32's still have some pretty impressive tread and only loses about 15% of it's originally designed performance/traction. Most winter tires should be replaced around 6/32's especially if you live in an with lots of snow. Because it is so mild and rarely snows in Vancouver, I'll be choosing the Michelins for their wet/dry performance and longevity. For almost everyone else, where heavy snow and cold weather is a winter staple, I would go with the WS80 which should be the superior tire when handling in snow and ice. Just replace it around 6/32's. The cold weather should also help reduce the rate in which the rubber wears so longevity is not as big of a concern.

Edit: Canadian Tire has a sale going on for the Continental WinterContact SI's until Oct 20 (will have been on for 3 weeks), plus a rebate and a gift card sale at SDM (both starting on Oct 15) puts them at about $160 less than the Xi3's and $45 less than the WS80's! Performance-wise, they seem very similar to the Xi3. Canadian Tire claims it "out-performs all the competition" in their testing... Xi3 gets excellent treadwear, road noise and rolling resistance/fuel economy scores, not sure how the WinterContacts perform in those categories.

for Michelin rebate, can I use $70 for all-season tires such as Defender?

Do I need to buy both sets of tires from Costco to benefit from their cheap tire changes, or just one? I'm definitely getting the winters from them but I may look elsewhere for all seasons come spring.

Can these be coupled with the fountain tire 4 for 3 tire deal?

Anyone taken advantage of that deal?

Does anyone know if there is a rebate available for Nokian (specifically WRG3) or one coming.

Thanks

imo, I would say X-ice 3 > WS80. Don't get me wring. I'd say the WS80 is better in terms of deep snow, but the X-ice 3 is better in terms of overall driving. Basically, if you live in the city and the street get plowed go with the Michelin. If you live in a rural area where snow takes time to get plowed, go WS80.

How much would it cost to get the Michelin X-Ice Xi3 through Costco? They're selling for $229 each at Canadian Tire. I don't have a Costco membership but I am willing to get it if it will save me money. Thanks for the informative post above. Would you recommend WS80 or the Xi3 for GTA?

I hated my xi2's(have no experience with the xi3's though), found them no better than all seasons in snow. And my ws80's, while did perform great, were wore out after just one season(just 7000kms)! So, never again will I buy those.

Best winter tires I have ever had in my own personal experience were Cooper Weathermaster. The best combination of price/performance and longevity(got 5 seasons out of them).

Any double blind factual findings comparing tires against each other?
Lots of advertising and hyperbole. Very little evidence based comparison.

Most car tires reviews, consumer report, protegez-vous, auto.ca and such will rank Bridgestone blizzak WS80, Michelin X-ice 3 and Nokian Hakkapellita as the top 3 tires you can buy (I'm not ranking them in any particular order here). As seen above there is much discussion as wich is better than wich but honestly having rode on all 3 in the last years, you can't go wrong with either of them. (I personaly prefer the Nokian but that's juste me and they are more expensive)

Don't forget that these 3 tires are the top 3 out of dozens of models so wich ever you chose, you're still in the top 3 and the difference between these 3 will be mininal

Costco has a very agressive price of the Blizzak WS80 and they have a 70$ rebate valid until oct 2nd and that's what I'm putting on my wife's car this year. 692$ all in for 205/55R16
