All Season Tire Recommendations?

I'm looking to get some new all season tires for my prelude (205/50R16). Just wondering if anyone have some good recommendations?

Looking for something that is fairly decent in some light snow as well.

Thanks in advance.

Typical All-Seasons is ok in light snow.

I used stupid Bridgestone RE92 last winter and they were fine.

I believe the Bridgestone RE92's were the stock ones I got with my prelude.

Actually, someone suggested the Nokian WR G2 to me. Anyone have them?

Never run them, but I know they work good in the snow. Lots of people in Kelowna have them mounted year round on their dailys.

Just avoid Michelin Hydroedge

every single people told me it's miserable in snow.
it's a good tire in the rain and last pretty long though.

Wow Timpo. Thats an exceptional deduction. A rain tire, is no good in the snow.


If you were not on here, I dont know what we all would do!

i've run Nokian WR on two cars, an 07 camry and a highlander. they work pretty good as all weather tires and can handle moderate snow. the highlander can handle deeper snow with the Nokian WR, but mainly it's because of the height clearance.

i've ran the camry to chilliwack during january with snow on the highways and the Nokian WRs handle pretty well. just don't drive like a tool because you think that snow tires will save your life, and you'll be fine

Are you SURE about the Michelin Hydroedge? Because my brother has them on his Civic, and they were AWESOME last winter. The civic had absolutely no problem at all in ANY day of last winter, it didn't slide, never got stuck, even in the heaviest snow days and during snowfall

Those last 3 tires are meant as an all season/performance tire. NOT GOOD IN SNOW? OMG NO WAI.

i had the 512s on my car 2 seasons ago. they may as well be racing slicks they are that bad!
i didnt really plan to drive around with them on but on nights that i got caught out and it started snowing, it was absolute hell.

The 512's are more of a performance all season tire. It was never really intended for snow. They're awesome on dry roads. It's not a Michelin all season tire which would be more decent in snow.

They're not bad, but still not recommended like the 512's.

Sorry for double post.
