Why bother getting all seasons? - get some good summer tires and get some good winter tires - you want the best from each season right? Try Toyo's - I just got a good deal on some 205/55/15's - they are great! unidirectional, v-rated, and only $140 each plus tax ($330 for a pair)...they are supposed to last at least 40 - 60,000 kms. I have to say though, Michelin tires last a REALLY long time - I put about 140,000 km's on a set a few years ago - couldn't believe it - ok, so the tread was down below the warning indicator, but still.......
