Question Winter Tires - performance or no?

Hi all - I was told by the dealer to get "h" rated performance witner tires - but out of all the reviews I read the Michellin XIce Ix2 tires seem the best to me.

This is not a performance or "h" rated winter tire - they're the best ones for the winters up here in Canada.

Should I get these?

I live in Minnesota. You needn't worry about the performance rating of your winter tire unless you're planning on doing some ice-racing. Having said that, there are a number of good winter tires that are "performance". I've used Dunlop Graspix and Michelin Pilot Alpins. They're both good choices. But, if you're convinced that the Michellin XIce Ix2 is the tire for you, I'd say go for it. Assuming of course, that you'll use a performance summer tire when the snow melts.

I have no idea about snow tires as I'm in an area without snow. If I don't see any additional posts in the next few days, I'll move this over to the tires/suspension forum and America's Tire can answer your question by far better then people like me.

I'm from Quebec, harsh winters in my area and I have Nokian WR for my Tl for now the 3rd winter, very good tires. Nokian Hakkapellita 5 are very good ones too.

Have the Z-G2 Summer tires on my summer wheels and the newest WR-G2 on my stock wheels for the winter weather!
