Glad they worked out.
I just helped a friend of mine in town that bought a blue HR-V the same time as well.
I really like the OEM alloy rims, and the Hyogo's look almost as sharp

Just installed a set of Michelin X-ICE XI3 Snow Tires (215/55-R17) and a set of Sport Edition CS1 17" Wheels.

May be it is my mind playing tricks on me, but the HRV seems to drive quieter now than with the OEM Michelins.
I should have measured the noise level with the OEM so that I can compare it with the current noise level.
Oh well....I guess I will do that in the spring when I switch back to the original tires.

.
With tires you usually pick winter traction, or low noise/fuel efficiency/low rolling resistance, they are typically mutually exclusive.
As per that consumer report I posted, the XIce3 are the best winter traction tire, and the only winter tire to be rated low rolling resistance/fuel efficient which makes them quiet.
It's quite impressive, glad you enjoy them. I think I mentioned after I got mine, I was doing highway trips, and getting similar mileage to summer.

This could end up being a perfect combination with the AWD:
Nice looks with the 17" wheels.
Low noise, good mileage and descent traction on dry and wet roads.
Good traction with the AWD on snowy roads. Can't wait for the snow.... I don't believe I just said that.

I'm now calling my HRV the Turtle, because it looks like one and the green wheels remind me of TMNT.

215/60R-16 MICHELIN X-ICE3 mounted on 16X7 SPARCO ASSETTO GARA GREEN wheels, $859 shipped/tax from tirerack.com

I'm so freaking excited to drive these in snow, but so far they're pretty nice in this weird WI weather. Deep puddles don't even slow the car down like the stock tires do, I only dropped about 1MPG, they're quiet, they ride a lot softer, and they still handle dry very well. Honestly...with the look of them and their performance I'm super tempted to leave them on year round and keep the stock tires in the shed for a few years

Best part, my wife encouraged me to get them! Thanks for all the recommendations on the x-ice guys, I'm super impressed so far.




Oh, and I dropped almost 13lbs from EACH WHEEL.

Those do look great with the Green!
And to drop 13lbs, impressive.

I joined the X-ICE3 club a few weeks ago wrapped around Voxx Alto 17"X 7.5". So far very quiet and ride great. No slippery stuff yet to test on. Impressed with how quiet they are on wet roads, that's usually when winter tires sing.

We got 15 cm of heavy wet snow the other day and the back roads weren't plowed but the Nokians took me through just fine with the occasional AWD light blinking on. Looks like this will be a good winter.

wow

We got our first plow-able snow fall here on the NH seacoast and I'm very impressed with the Michelin X-ICE3's. Handling and breaking were very good and traction was unbelievable. With traction control turned off, I still had a hard time getting the tires to lose grip.
