Any experience or feedback with these winter tires if you used it in your CR-V?
Pirelli Winter Ice Zero FR 108H
Continental WinterContact SI 108T
Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 104H

Is different load index and speed rating okay? Currently on 235/65R17 104H

Thanks

If you are looking for ice and snow winter tires for local driving the most
Go with the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2,

I've also decided on the Blizzak WS80. I need to get rims though and I've been weighing out steelies vs. alloys. Not sure which way I will go yet on those.

I've purchased all three brands for various cars I've owned. The Pirelli had the best lateral grip and acceleration/deceleration grip on ice/sleet, but felt the least stable at highway speeds. The Continental had best stability, but worst grip. The Blizzak were in between. Keep in mind even the worst performing winter tire is significantly better than any all-season tire during winter conditions.

As a matter of fact, the Blizzak wheels and tires I used last winter on my (now gone) 2016 WRX are sitting in my basement now.

Thanks, I am leaning towards Pirreli because of better reviews, I have yet to see a negative review

X2000 on that! ^^^



I'm running Yokohama IceGuard 51V currently.

You can go higher in load rating, but not lower than OEM.

I have a 2017 touring, can I go down to 17 rims (I think if I do that I use 235/65/17 tires)?

If yes what's the best choice out of the following:

1) Costco steel 17in rim X47567 $58.99 + Bridgestone Blizzak WS-80 235/65/17 $142.49 = $201.48
2) Costco steel 17in rim X47567 $58.99 + Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 235/65/17 $152.49 = $211.48
3) Tires only Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 235/65/18 $202.49
4) Tires only Pirelli - WINTER ICE ZERO FR 235/65/18 $186.99

its always better to get a set of spare rims for your winters. its cheaper to just take the wheel on and off the car vs mounting tires on one set of rims. Less chance of damage to your alloys too. yes you can downsize to 235/65/17. My LX uses that size as stock. i got the exact same rim from costco a few weeks ago and mounted my winters on them. I will do the wheel swap myself when it gets colder

I bought a set of Nokian WRG3 SUV 235/60R18 107 V and put them on my factory rims. Now I don't have to change tires for 80,000kms.

I'm sure they're good tires, but those aren't winter tires.
Um, yes they are. They are snow tires (with the snowflake symbol on them) that stay on all year round.

"All-weather tires can often seem like a compromise, trying to toe the line between good warm weather performance and decent cold weather abilities. Known primarily for their winter tires, Nokian has created an excellent all-weather tire that won't disappoint in rather polarizing conditions. The WRG3 attained a score of "good" in our tests when it came to ice braking and ice and snow cornering, while on wet and dry pavement, it nailed the very good to excellent rating. Surprisingly in slushy conditions, the WRG3 is as good as it gets, while keeping hydroplaning at bay adroitly. Built-in wear indicators keep you abreast of remaining tread life, too. If you don't want two sets of tires year round, the WRG3s are a superb choice."

I got the 17 in steel rim (X47567) from this guide: https://m.costco.ca/wcsstore/CostcoCABCCatalogAssetStore/Attachment/SteelWheels+FitmentGuide_Sept-2017.pdf

It should work with the 235/65/17 tires as mentioned right?

It doesn't show your "ET45" or "centre bore 64.1mm"
