Winter tires compound is very soft and how long they last will depend on make and model of the tire as well as vehicle weight and road conditions, and how much you drive on them per season.
Our Generals are on for 4th season now with just over 25K km on them. I expect them to last this and next season, at least, so 5 seasons total as the least and just about 45K kms.

Had the DMV1s on my Ford Escape for 8 winters and they had 60% of the tread remaining (after 40,000 miles of winter driving).
Don't know where you heard that but my personal experience is that they are great tires.
I always removed them before warm weather and installed them after it was consistently cold, 40F or less.

Im going to look further into the Salulns, and the Blizzaks as well. I dont know if paying the extra for Michelin is worth it

So I went with the Saluns, reviews were good and I had some real life experience reviews from co-worker who runs same tires. We'll see once first snowfall hits!

Anything by Nokian, period!

I'm running Hakkapeliitta R2, Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 SUV 235/55 R19 105R XL specifically!
You will never go back! I've have tried them all brands over 11 years and Nokian will be my choice for life.
If I cannot get these my 2nd choice would be Gislaved's!

ya I agree, Nokians are excellent winter weather tires, a little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for.

Those are the same ones I have on my Sorento.

Excellent winter tires.

I narrowed my choices to the Michelin Xi2, Continental WinterContact Si and the Hankook iCept evo2 w320a for my SXL. All three had very good reviews on the many sites I've read. I ended up buying the Continentals at Crappy Tire ($193.57/tire after rebate). I'll be putting them on 19" Kia oem rims. We'll see how they perform this winter as I just heard on the local news today that we (Toronto) will be getting more snow than what we've had the last couple of winters. I have Michelin Xi2s on my Subaru Outback for the past few years and they've performed well in snow (not too deep) and ice. Still got lots of tread left on 'em. Hopefully, I get the same performance out of these WinterContacts.

Those are nice OEM's do share photos of how they will look once installed?
I'm looking to get 20" OEM Ford Rims for my Daily Drive next year. Take a look at the rims! These are not my rims but you get the idea. The tires I'm hoping to get more low profile square edge look / finish.

TPMS question... did you guys have to have your TPMS reprogrammed by the dealer when you switched to winter tires? I seem to find conflicting information about the self-learning ability of the TPMS computer in the Sedona...
