TireRack is closing out the Michelin X-Ice Xi2 Winter Tires which are tied for #1 rated winter tires by Consumer Reports. They have several sizes in stock. I just purchased a set of 4 for mine which were about $100 cheaper than elsewhere including $54 shipping.

Ugh, if I buy these, I'll need rims with TPMS.

I am in Chicago and the winter tires are only available for shipping from Nevada for $100. (WTF, why do they store winter tires in Nevada in the first place Smilie ), anyways with a set of rims, the shipping cost goes up to $200. Forget it, time to move on ...
I'm in Chicago too and it's $44 shipping for me

I'm still using the original X ice. I have a second set of rims and I switch them out at the time of the first major snowfall and take them off in early April. They do effect handling but are very sticky. They also seem to last a decent amount of time. The car isn't driven very much 6000-7000 miles per year (previously it was driven more) but the tires are five winters old and it looks like I'll get 2 more out of them probably.

They work extremely well in the snow, night and day difference between the original X ice and ASR.

I guess it depends on the size - I was looking for 215/60R16. By the way, I noticed at the check out that the tires are " 2009 Production". Manufacturers typically recommend replacing tires every 6 years or so, regardless of the remaining tire tread. So keep in mind that by the time the next winter come around, the tires will be 4 years old.

But isn't it 6 years from time of use? Why would a 2009 produced tire kept brand new for 4 years need to be replaced after 2 years?

For what is worth, a couple of articles on tire aging.

link1 [discounttire.com]
link2 [safercar.gov]

From the second link (a US safety watchdog association)

What is meant by “tire aging”?

The structural integrity of a tire can degrade over an extended period of time. When that occurs, tires are more prone to catastrophic failure, which could, at best, cause an inconvenience, or, at worst, lead to a crash. The degradation of a tire occurs over time, mostly the result of a chemical reaction within the rubber components. That aging process can be accelerated by heat and sunlight.

Thanks! I was/am at that stage and no production date shows for me. No wonder I wasn't seeing it. LOL! That's odd it shows for you, but not me. Tried it in both Firefox and IE... nothing shows.

Maybe because I am looking at a different model...

I am in CA. It says 40K warranty for icy weather. Is it worth buying? How long will it last in CA?
Winter tires are superior at temperatures of 40 degrees F and lower not just in snow or ice. The compounds used in the construction of all-season or even regular tires become more rigid below 40 degrees F and lose some of their grip, even on a dry road. The compounds in winter tires will perform better and provide more traction in ALL conditions during the winter(if it's cold enough where you are) and perform significantly better in ICE as they usually have more biting edges or a way to remove the thin layer of melt water from the surface of ice.

Hope this helps to determine if you can benefit from these. Basically if your winter temps hover around or below 40 degrees F you should run winter tires.

Fun fact: All-season tires are most popular in the United States and rarely used in other countries. Winter tires are legally required in Canada and swapping your summer tires out for winter is the standard practice in Europe.

Thanks! Normally I swear by Blizzak, and made the mistake of using the crappy Arctic Cat's that came with my mini this year. They were TERRIBLE. I was planning on picking up a set of Blizzaks to replace them with this fall, but I can't pass this deal up. They seem to get great reviews everywhere I've looked. Hopefully they are as good as everyone says. I can't stand not having exceptional traction in the winter.
Advantage of Michelin's is that they have a mileage warranty on their winter tires and they are Michelins.
