We have family in utica, but live in central NJ so we drive up alot & get 3/4 nor'easters a season .
Stocks are fine however if you drive alot i’d sell and get a good all climate while u can recoup a few bucks on them.

i just switched out my ecopias (with 12/13k on them )and sold them for Goodyear WeatherReadys

trade ins no.
Rather then do winter and all season switching , i did the all climates. Its a new class you get winter performance in winter, anti hydroplaning in rain etc

they are awesome.
I stacked codes, promos to drop the price dramatically

i have 19’s and did 235/55/19
Which retail for $249 a tire. I ended up about $160 installed

should be lower for you with the smaller size but money well spent.

some crv owner on Craigslist will buy your stocks for 250/300

I live in the Finger Lakes and found the Hankook Kinergy GTs to be HORRIBLE in the snow. I also just got the Goodyear Weatherready Assurance and they are great in the snow. If not those, at least up on all-weather tires that have the 3 mountain peak snow rating.

I have to say.. that looks like a very innovative tread design in an all weather tire.

Will definitely take a look at these when it comes time to replace my Hankooks. I don't have snow to deal with, but these should be cracker jack for rain and slippery roads I would imagine.

Sorry for the slow delay. I don't have any experience with the Scorpion model. Tirerack.com should be releasing their winter tire shootout soon, I'd think, so maybe they'll have more info. These Goodyear Weatherready tires have turned my ride into a tank. A cold tank, but still, a tank.

From what I've read, when tires add on more snow/ice traction they usually give up some wet handling. An exception maybe is the Michelin Crossclimate, but they are $$$
