This is Dominic Vaillancourt member of the technical team at PMCTire We are proud to present to you the 2018-2019 Top 5 best winter tires for passenger vehicles New in our top 5 this year, The Yokohama Ice Guard IG52 is in 5th position due to its excellent value and price It is a good tire fit for all conditions and offers good durability. Stepping up from one position since last year, the Continental WINTERCONTACT SI remains a highly appreciated tire by our customers also offering a good traction on snow and ice. Its advantage over Yokohama is that it also offers a total confidence plan including 3-year roadside assistance for punctures and free replacement in the first 12 months. The WINTERMAXX 2 from Dunlop also moves up one position this year from 4th place to the 3rd one. Like the two previous tires, it offers good traction on ice and snow. Its advantage is that it is quieter. In addition, the manufacturer offers a rebate of $ 60 with the purchase of a set of WINTERMAXX 2 Note that it is also the only asymmetrical tire of the top 5 ensuring a nice and even wear of the tires if the rotation are completed regularly Accustomed to first place the Michelin X-Ice X I3 is now in second place It’s still an excellent choice thanks to its impressive durability and unparalleled traction on the ice The X-ice Xi3 is the most comfortable winter tire and absolutely feels like a summer tire A $ 70 mail-in rebate is offered for the purchase of 4 Michelin winter tires Little surprise this year, the Bridgestone WS80 is ranked first. Its legendary reliability and durability make it a premium road partner Its main argument is that it is the most versatile winter tire being as effective on ice as it is on snow Ideal if you live in areas where the weather is changing.
