I think unless the 20" version is a few orders of magnitude better than the 18 inch version of the Michelin, it would be a terrible waste of money.

The Continentals on the other hand may be good, as would 20 Nokians.

This ^ ! Michelin latitudes not great except as a summer tire, and when mine need replacement I will pick something different. Dave

The Nokian WR SUV 3 is an all season tire with emphasis on snow and winter driving. so probably as close to a snow tire as you will get with the ability to leave it on year round.

Well, I already got a set for X-ICE to cover for my winter, it just don't know if I should get a set of all-season or summer tires.

I felt the OEM Goodyear seems to be a harder ride then the Michelin. I wonder if getting a new set of Michelin would improve the ride quality. I am just debating myself if I should get a set of all season tires from either Michelin or Contiental, or getting a set of Perilli summer tires.....
Greetings,

Since you have the X-ICE 2 already for the winter, I would look into an all season tire to cover the rest of spectrum. Wet traction, hydroplaning, dry and cornering etc....

Check this tire out from Nitto:

ALL NEW NITTO NT421Q in 265/50 VR 20

NT421Q Premier All-Season Crossover & SUV Tire

As for Nokian:

Nokian HT SUV - Safety and precise steering feel for varying summer weather, even when off of the main roads / Nokian Tires

Nokian is suppose to have a new 3 season lineup shortly. It will be under their Summer Line. The WRG3 SUV is an excellent tire, but you have X-ICE2 already.

Best for now.
