Default Yet another tire question...

I'm driving RSX, so far with stock 205/55/16 Michelins. I hate those tires.
Once/week I'm checking tire pressure, no air loss, always properly rotated.
Yet all I got out of them is 42,000km (cca. 26,000 mi). Chewed up with
hardly any tread left. Terrible snow, not very good wet pavement traction.
I'm ready to replace with either:

Dunlop, series 5000 or 9000
Toyo, TPT or Proxes FZ4
Nokian WR

Does anybody have experience with these and what kind? Good, bad,
indifferent? All "V" rated.

Any input will be appreciated. Thank you.

A.

BTW check out Bridgestone Turanza LS-V. They come with a 30 day test drive,
and they are very nice.

Being in Canada I'm very limited as to what I can buy. Sucks

Thanks for replying, got the Toyo ones and love them. Screeching a bit in
corners, but they look like a decent ones. Winter will tell.
