Default First Montreal Winter: Need Help!

So, its my first Montreal winter with my WRX. I need some help picking out winter tires. I've narrowed it down to what I think is the best: Bridgestone LM25, Hankook W300 Ice Bears, Yokohama iceGuard 10 or AVS Winter.

Just unsure which will be the best for the weather here. I was also curious to the ice traction/braking with the Hankooks. Also, unsure of the difference between the Yokohamas. Just needed some reviews from the area. Especially curious about ride noise/comfort and black ice (i'm scared of that ****.)

I'm just a bit confused about all this. So, any help would be greatly appreciated.

The latest copy of Consumers Report has a good comparison of about twenty different winter tires. Based on the few tires I know it looks relatively accurate. If I recall the Ice Bears were great on ice but poor on snow and not bad on dry pavement. I don't remember if the Blizzacks or Yoko's were tested.

But people say the Hankooks are great on snow and pretty good on dry.... ... I never know who to go with. But, if there is any inkling of them being good on Ice, I think thats the one for me from reviews. Quiet, comfortable, good in dry, fairly good in snow, good price.

Yeah I know. The metro is real nice and all... unfortunately I live outside of it.


Went with the Hankooks. Highly recommend for anyone. Really quiet. Good in Dry and Wet. A bit squirmish... but what can you expect. I'll see how they do in the snow in the next couple weeks.
