My OEM tires are terrible in the snow even though they only have 30k on them and I'm considering Michelin Defenders. Does anyone have experience with these tires? My husband has the on his CRV and likes them. I did read one review on the Elantra and that person had lost a considerable amount of MPG. Also I'm not sure if I should get the T rated or H rated tires. The originals are H rated but the T rated may be better in the snow. Also Sears significantly different fuel economy ratings, the T being rated a 4 and the H being rated an 8, I'm not sure how they arrive at these ratings. Can't afford 2 sets of tires/wheels or I would get winter tires and my car is too old to make the investment.
