Post New Tires...What to pick??

I have a 2001 Aquamarine LTD with 53,000Km's and I am about to replace all 4 tires (I have Goodyears on now) With all the selection out there I need a little help. I have narrowed it down to BF Goodrich Traction TA, Bridgestone Insignia SE200, Pirelli P3000 or Michelin Harmony. Any input would be wonderful.

Pirelli has a model called a P6 its much better then the P3000. Its a little more costly though. My wife has those on her focus they handle really well. Thats what I would go with for my 01 L/E cruiser

I was really surprised when I was quoted for the Pirelli as I thought they would be way out of my price range. My only concern is how they will handle the snow and ice we get here in Ontario.

I don't know how they would handle in the snow. My wife has snow tires for her focus. They should handle pretty well i would think. Good Luck keep me posted with what you pick.

I have had good 4-seasons grip with Continental Extreme Contacts.

here is my review of them on epinions:

The Harmonys are an excellent tire and I did run them one winter, but if you go with the BF Goodrich Traction TA they are an excellent tire and better in the snow..

I bought Hankook's and have been pleasently surprised. I was concerned they may not be sticky enough for Florida ( when it's wet ) but they have been great from a traction perspective.

I think the Goodyear's gave a harsher ride.

performance tires are not good on Ontario roads.

My Toyo Proxys are were never designed to be used below 40 degrees F

The Proxies are are fantastic for the time my Car is on the road May til Oct

My PT was only driven once in the winter in the snow. I hated to do that
