This is what I bought for my 2013. They should also fit your 2014.

go to Canadian tire they have cheap steel rims for 65 each and tires on sale . I just got Goodyear Nordic Winter tires myself was under 1100 tax in installed and free swaps every time from summer to winter is good deal and don't get them studded unless you have to or do a lot of highway in city they don't help more problems with studs in city driving. hope it helps

I never want to live anywhere that requires winter tires or boots.

I have two challenges. While live in wintery southern Ontario, plan to spend month of February in Florida. Winter tires can be useful if run into weather on the way down and back; but not good to have on the car when down south. Thus winter tire spec has to be one that will not excessively be subject to wear in warmer weather.
2nd is I hate the look of steel rims. Wonder if you cannot at least get wheel covers for them
Then last but not least there is the option to go with so called "all weather", rated for winter tires.

In your case, go for the Nokian WRG3's that just came out. They should be solid for you in Florida.

Full winter will get too sticky down south.

BTW, Nokian Hakka "R2" SUV just came out this year. We put some on ours for $1284 w/ tax installed. Probably the most solid winter tire you will get for a hardcore winter (i.e. no rain).

Good to know. I thought about Haka 7 for my Sorento. What are the difference between those 2 models ?

nokian wrg2 -all weather expensive some more road noise
nokian hakka r2- newer version of older haakka. r.. winter tires studless (i have the hakka r)
nokian hakka 7- old hakka r thread but with studs..

the rotiva (all weather) and lt2 (w/ studs) are not in out category both are for heavy duty for trucks i would say..

This and a bit more.

Hakka 2, 4, 5, and now 7 are studdable tires. If you need something studded, the Hakka 7 should be your pick. If you're looking for something non-studded, look at the R2 as it is a siping tire. R2 also has low roll resistance, so better economy, etc.

WRG3 is the new WRG2 as you probably would have guessed. More of tire if you encounter all driving conditions, including rain.
