    Bridgestone Blizzak

    We had them on 5 previous Hondas and they can't be beat

    I am going with Continental Extreme Winter Contact. They were rated #1 in the Tirerack winter test against Michelin Xice2, Dunlop Graphics and Bridgestone Blizzak WS70. I am going with their recommended size of 205/50R17. The Continentals are a little more reasonable price wise against the Michelins and Bridgestones.

    Same here! I had a set of goodyear winter tires before, but they just didn't perform as well as the blizzak's. Been with them for the past 3 years! But going to need a new set for my ILX.

    Hankook I pikes! Hands down the best for really harsh winter climates. I rolled blizzaks on my RSX-s and they did good but nothing beats studs on a good tread

    I heard you can add spikes to them to grip into ice, also heard they wear out fast. but if you have mild winters, they are perfect!

    My buying decision has changed. The tire dealer has a bulk buy on Hankook W409 Winter ipike tires and I can get them installed for $269.00 less than the Continentals. Gotta go with that deal for me.

    that's an amazing price.
    I heard iPikes wear out a bit faster than other winter tires but they grip nicely, for the price your getting them for, it's well worth it.
