I'm curious what type of winter tires you are selecting for your S/V90's.
The dealer packages seem to go with the Michelin X-ice, but I'm not convinced I am completely sold on them.
Where I live in the Boston area we usually have plowed and salted roads, so I rarely drive on untreated or icy roads. Because of this, I used to always select Alpine style "performance winter" tires, You know, softer tread and larger sipes than so called all-seasons, without the noise and poor handling characteristics in the dry like you get with traditional winter tires.
Lately though it seems like the traditional non-studded winter tires have started performing better in this regard, with less of a noise and handling penalty than in the past.
Because of this I am going back and forth between a traditional and well reviewed set of Continental Vikingcontact 7's, and a "performance winter" set of Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4's.
What are everyone thoughts on this subject on here?
