This winter was my first in a winter climate, and I went with 4 Yokohama Guardex's on our '95 Intrepid. The size is a 215/65/15. I've been amazed at the traction, both snow/ice and dry. The fronts seem to be about 2/5ths gone after about 6,000 miles, but I didn't rotate them, and they saw about a month of 75-85 degree temperatures. My commute is 80 miles round trip, and it is about 90% high-speed highway (80+ mph). The rears are virtually unworn, and they will ride up front this year.

I had to keep them on, because we were living at 9,000 feet in the Rockies outside Denver. It could be 80 in denver, with a foot of snow in the foothills. Hence, they have seen a bit more heat than they should have.

I am going to try a set of Michelin X-ones with the hope I can keep the snows off for all but a month or two. BTW, the Yokohama's made great mud tires, too. Snowmelt, y'know.
