Well, I have FINALLY gotten around to writing a recommendation for the Nokian WR-G2 tires. Personally, i've had every single "popular" brand tires (eg. Michelin, Bridgestone, BFG) on my car and they are not even close to as good as these Nokians. Not many people know about these tires so here's some info off their website:

Inside – Outside Design Tread Pattern - Tread pattern differs on the inside of the tire and the outside shoulder of the tire for the best handling on wet and dry pavement
• Driving Safety Indicator - DSI system uses number blocks displayed in the center of the tread area, indicating the safety level and remaining tread depth in millimeters
• 3-D Self-Locking Siping - The self-locking siping located in the central rib supports the tire in the lateral and longitudinal direction, and particularly improves driving stability and wet grip
• Water Wipe System - Ensures that the tread is pressed firmly against the pavement to prevent hydroplaning and slushplaning when braking
• Canola Oil and Cool Silica Tread Compounds - These compounds combined improve winter wet grip and reduces tire rolling resistance saving fuel without compromising its winter capabilities
• Respecting the Environment - Manufacturing Process uses only low aromatic, purified oils
• Severe Service Emblem - Only four-season family of tires that carries the Severe Service Emblem exceeding new government snow condition regulations

These tires are an all season performance tire...yet they perform better in snow than just about all winter tires that i've owned previously.

These tires are quieter than anything i have ever driven on before, which was a big concern to me.
Also, the tires seem to have a lower rolling resistance (i'm guessing because of the canola oil rubber compound) considering they increased my MPG by around 1-2:D.

I've also had a lot of people ask me where i got my tires from. I got them from They have fast, free shipping and a very knowledgeable sales team. Overall i'm impressed with the tires and also the service i got.

Hope this has been helpful.
