Has anyone started looking into this as yet? If so post what you plan on using on your HRV.

I haven't looked into it as yet but usually I find that brand new all season tires can be good enough, but if you want to be extra safe get winter tires, it just isn't all that necessary.

Totally depends how much snow is going to be on the ground in your part of the world. I think that winter tires are pretty important for people living in Canada. Almost half the ear here there is the potential for snow to be on the road.

Yeah that's part of it, many other things factor in to it as well.

You might not get a lot of snow but if it's extremely cold, your all seasons won't be as grippy as winter tires.

I didn't realize that just the temperature without ice, or moisture would also affect driving. I imagine it isn't nearly as big an effect as when there is ice etc...

Anyone have recommendations for winter tires? I don't know much about tires at all.

Nokkian is a «reference» for winter tyres : maybe a bit more expensive, but one is always satisfied with the securtiy, the performance and the confort they bring in winter conditions...

I have always gone with bridgestone blizzak's, starting with my 99 civic sedan, they were amazing, ended up using them on a 2000 acura integra and they were still amazing. Now that they're well past their life span, i can see myself buying another set for the HRV.

How do the bridgestone blizzak's handle ice on the road?

Cheers

I have heard of Blizzaks before. I watched a review where they had them on a Jeep so I figure that they must be relatively good tires for the snow.
