When I click on the Clearance link it shows me a bunch of good prices but when I choose tire sizes they are not consistent.
I want to be able to look at ALL of the discounted tires classified according to whatever Clearance prices the tires are (i.e. 205-55-16 or 225-70-18 would show up together because they are both on Clearance even though they are different brands, models, etc...)
This is why I hate crappy tire site, and whom ever designed it. Impossible to get a breakdown price by sizes. Must choose a vehicle first.

Right! And their site gives the wrong sizes for my Sonata, so I can't even find the right tires!

Seriously. They're assuming everyone has the stock sizes

In my size it's $800 for the x-ice Xi3 from CT, or $900 for x-ice snow (after MIR) from blackcircles.

I checked a lot of reviews and the new model seems to offer a lot of value, better performance & longer life so I'm leaning towards that.
FWIW, I put a set of the new XIce Snows on my wife's CX5 this morning. Owner of the shop I go to commented on how these are definitely improved over the previous XIce (which I have on my car) and how I should be real happy with them

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. I went with the X-ice Snow.

All weather tires will perform slightly better in the snow than all seasons but no where near as good as a dedicated snow tire. So if your satisfied/comfortable with mediocre performance than keep the all weather but if you want the best and safest than get a premium snow tire.

Lol, all-seasons are the bare minimum to use them all year round. In the first winter of all-seasons, they'll be pretty good, but as they get older they definitely won't perform as good as dedicated winter tires.

That being said, I'd consider skipping winter tires this year if you don't need to go out much with Covid. In a normal winter with commuting to work, grocery shopping, social events, there's a greater chance I'd need to go out during winter. This year, probably can wait until roads are clear (assuming you live in a city with mild winters).

They’re 95H not 89H, which is better. DOT is 0919 - not too thrilled but also not terrible.
Just got my set also DOT 3419. I'm ok with it.

I got 3 with DOT 2619 and one 2718. Should I try to exchange the one that's 2718?

I've had all weather tires before (actual "all weather" tires, not "all season" tires which are really only "3 season" tires). They're definitely not as good as actual snow tires in the winter, but if you're not driving a ton and don't get a lot of really extreme weather, they're fine. If you get tons of snow/icy weather and regularly drive a lot in such weather, snow tires are still the way to go IMO.

Weird - both of my vehicles (2019 Sienna and 2020 Stinger) were given more than one size option (equivalent sizes that I double checked will work with my vehicles).

I had the same option with both my cars (Accord and Miata) but those options are still from the sizes that the manufacturers recommend for the model lineups - if you had changed the rims or OE setup, and can accommodate minor changes in tire specs (i.e. 45 instead of 55, or 195 instead of 205) then it's not helpful at all.
