Also, I'm leasing the leaf for 3 years, and I know how crappy the stock tires are. So, in a perfect world, I'd love LRR snow tires that I could run year round, and return the Leaf with the barely used (and crappy) stock tires.
I've googled a bit, and found some references to the Michelin X-Ice and Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2. I put together a comparison , but, there's no mention of LRR. So, I'm not sure how good or bad any of those are.
I have found no way to search for "efficient" and "winter"
So, the question(s) are pretty simple:
- Does anyone have any recommendations for a good LRR winter tire that won't completely shred if used year round for about 40k miles.
- If not, does anyone have a recommendation for a good LRR all season tire that is really good on ice and snow?
- And, finally, if all else fails, does anyone have a recommendation on a good LRR tire for winter only, and I'll swap them.
- Oh, and a final, almost unrelated question: Could I just put two winter tires up front? Remember, since I'm leasing, the tires I buy will likely be "throw away" in 2.5 years.
