High performance tires that are good in the summer and in the snow/ice don't exist. If you get a good amount of snow, it would be a good idea to get some separate 16" wheels and winter tires. Winter is coming around so get the snow package now and save up for summer tires when they can be used.

Youd want a set of ultra-high performance all seasons. rememmber an all season tire does not meant that its outstanding in the snow, but can handle the colder temps and keep the tire useable. the conti extreme, bridgestone potenza re960, michelin exalto are some good choices

Just my humble opinion !!!

Spence...As a member of 8th Civic Forum, I personally would like to thank you for your input on this thread. I have been a long time customer of Tirerack and have had nothing but outstanding service and great prices not to mention the knowledgeable employees that give you their honest opinion even if it may not close the sale (that has happened to me). Keep up the good work. :thumb:

I'd go with the ContiExtreme out of these. Best bang for the buck and you get a free digital picture frame right now.


Hey Spencer does Jessica Alba deliver that frame herself?:biggrin:

Also the Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S. Personally, I'd also stick with separate winter and summer wheels/tires because you'd get maximum performance in both climates.
