Default Tire Question: Nokian WR-G2 again, or Michelin Primacx MXV4 ?

Hello,

Have a 2005 Accord, 6 cyl.

Have a set of Nokian WR G2 tires on them, which I leave year round.

Now has about 40K, and have worn down to the wear strips.

As I live in New England; snow, ice, etc. is the major concern of course.

Like the Nokian's, very much, but they sure don't wear too well, and are
very expensive.

I understand they have a 50K wear warr., so, perhaps, if I go with
another set I can get them at 20% less than the normal price; maybe ?

Consumer Reports thought quite highly of Michelin Primacx MXV4.
Somewhat surprisingly, much higher than the Nokian Wr-G2

Was wondering about going with the Michelins this time, mainly due to
the lower cost (and better CR rating ??).
Would still want to leave them on all year round.

Any thoughts on how they would be on snow and ice as compared to the
Nokian's ?

Any other thoughts or comments would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

I have found TireRack to be a good source for the type of information you
are looking for. So far, I have found Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum tires to be
quite satisfactory on my 06 Accord I4 coupe. But, since I live in midstate
GA I cannot talk to their performance in snow. In my case, I purchased the
tires through TireRack for delivery to my installer -- a process that worked
very well indeed.
