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.

Thanks! I was/am at that stage and no production date shows for me. Maybe because I am looking at a different model... 205/65R15 Michelin Pilot Exalto....
Yes, they only show the production date when it's an issue. Obviously some of the X-Ice are being cleared out because they are old stock (really old.... like they unearthed a truckload at the back of the warehouse...?) You can safely assume anything that doesn't list a date was produced within the past year.

OK deal if they have your size, but in my mind 4 year old tires should be even cheaper.

Winter tires are legally required in Canada and swapping your summer tires out for winter is the standard practice in Europe.
Didn't stop the massive 100+ car pileup in Edmonton Alberta last week.

Small sizes? lol.. what, do you want snow tires for 19" rims?
Well this is what I see on tirerack:

Choose vehicle's current tire size(s).
Minus Wheel Diameter: 17"
(Smaller wheel diameter than O.E.) Explain

17" Recommended: 225/55-17
17" Alternate: 215/55-17

Original Equipment Wheel Diameter: 18"

18" Recommended: 225/50-18

I never had winter tires, but since you well versed in this can you please recommend?

Thanks!

It costs $70 to get them mounted. Check with your Discount Tire store if they can match this. you may get lucky.

Ooooh! I love this place. I deal with only ONE rep there, and he takes very good care of his customers. PM me if you want his info. I won't buy my tires anywhere else and that includes local competitors.

So do I have to take these off in the summer time or are the good all year round?

Also does it screw with gas mileage at all?

You do not want to use winter tires in the summer. The rubber is designed to stay soft and grip in sub freezing temps. In the summer, they get way too soft and will wear out quick and also compromise handling. I purchased a set of steel wheels just for winter tires, and put them on around Christmas and off by March 15 (live in West Michigan). I have three winters on my set and they look almost new.

a very important note and something that everybody needs to keep in mind when shopping for tires. people with newer cars having TPMS might see slightly higher prices for shop work too.

here are two examples for your choices if you buy these tires (using my '12 civic sedan as example):
1. pay the ~$70 to get these mounted onto your stock rims every winter and then pay the ~$70 to get your summer tires mounted back, totaling ~$140 each year to swap these out not to mention the time wasted at the shop twice a year and the chance of the shop damaging your rim or tire.

$274 AR for the tires
+shipping
+$140 each year after that

2. buy some steel rims to fit your car (price varies whether you buy new or used) and TPMS sensors (if required). more money up front, but you will be able to swap them out yourself at home.

$274 AR for the tires
+$200 steel rims (new from tire rack)
+$143.96 for TPMS (New TPMS sensors must be initialized at the dealer. This charge is not included in the cost of the sensors.)
+free mounting and balancing (if buying both wheels and tires from tire rack)
+shipping

either way, you are also going to have to find a place to store whichever set of tires you aren't using at the time.
