I know - it's middle of summer but this is the time when winter tires are cheap. Living in Ottawa, I know I will need winter tires for my Volt. Any recommendations for winter tires for an Ottawa owner?

You can purchase my used set in the for sale section :) You would need to sell the 1G wheels that they are currently mounted on and purchase some 16" wheels that fit the 2G Volt.

Based on where you live and the type of snow you will get which is mostly cold powder, you could probably get away with the all season except for the cold icy roads you might encounter.

I would probably use the michelin ice-x x3, and Costco has a $70 discount every month or so.

I have already purchased my winter rims and waiting to see if anything new is coming out in the fall, the x3's are a couple of years old, so is the ws80 probably might be looking at a foreign make, we usually get slushy snow here in the west coast however after our record snow last winter, I might even be considering studded tires.

Michelin Defender All-Season or Michelin X-Ice Snow. I have owned both tires with no sliding problems. I drive at reasonable speeds on snow-covered mountain roads all winter at 9,000 to 12,000 feet.
