    Yeah that is a pretty good deal from Costco OTD. Hard to do better than that for sure. How did you like your Ecopia's in the winter?

    Well, see.... before we bought the Prius, we had a 91 Geo Prism - which had a standard transmission (which I miss), but no anti-lock brakes or anything. So I thought the Ecopia's were GREAT in the winter, but really it probably has more to do with driving a car with brakes from this century.

    Ooh we missed the Costco deal (we just joined) but I put on 2 of the Continentals today from TireRack.
    Just needed the front (did not rotate the GY CT's we had on there).

    Prius Drivers: I have checked all tires in Tire Racks site size 195/65/15, I came up with 8 tires with good to better tire wear. Bridgestone Ecopia EP 422, Yokohama AVID Ascend, Continental Conti Pro contact, Hankook optimo H426, Pirelli P6 Four season Plus and with ECO Plus, Michelin Defenders,Michelin Energy Saver A / S, GoodYear Assurance Fuel Max.

    All these tires have good to great tire wear and traction. My question is what is the better to Best tire for Connecticut weather all year.
