The Winterforce is a good tire for the money Justin. I have sold a couple thousand of those over the last few years with few or no complaints.

I ordered a set. Waiting on the slow boat from Brazil to bring them up here. 4-6 weeks is what I was told. That was about a month ago. :-(

Of course we don't have any snow yet, so it really doesn't matter.

$296 here. Price matching, free shipping and no sales tax adds up when you order through the auto service store on base. :)

Then of course I had to fork out another $300 for new steel wheels and a second set of TPMS sensors. So yeah, you came out ahead.

I use General Altimax Arctic studded snow tires on my Accord. (My DD for work)

I love em. They were rated a little better than the winterforce which I have used before.

I have to say the Altimax tires when the snow and ice was on the ground were like driving on dry pavement.

You can read the tirerack reviews here

Either is a great winter tire, I just prefer the Altimax over the winterforce.

I went with the stock 16" wheel size for winter.

There is no significant cost advantage with 15" tires around here and the stock profile gets the tread width/tire height balance correct to give you a tire that bites through deep snow IMO.
