All-season tire suggestion

I found out I got a flat tire driving back from Ohio to Illinois, somehow didn't notice it over nearly 100 miles. I saw the TPMS turn on, but I thought that was just because the temperature changed a lot. Anyways, I'm looking for an all-season tire that can deal with snow. I know, if I'm worried about snow, I might as well get winter tires. Except I live in an apartment, and storing seasonal tires isn't an option for me.

It looks like Michelin Premier A/S are very popular. Any other options (a tad bit cheaper) I should look at. I really don't drive that much (16.5k miles on a 2014 Accord).

General Altimax RT43, pretty darn good tire at a darn good price. You should be able to get them from Walmart or preferably have someone match the Walmart price.

Unfortunately none around me. I live in the middle of the cornfields.

How is the Altimax compared to the Goodyear Assurance Comfortred Touring? With the $80 rebate on the Goodyears, the price is pretty good $100. I've been reading it's comparable to the Primacy MXV4? Unfortunately teh Primacy doesn't fit my LX.

I put the Altimax's on an Odyssey years ago. It was 7 tenths of a snow tire good when brand new and wear was good. Excellent in the rain. I made the decision based on the tire rack reviews and videos. I just put a set on an 09 CRV H rated ones and they have been excellent this winter, once again about 7 tenths of a snow. Paid 100 bucks per tire plus mounting. Not a Goodyear fan but if the price is right, worth considering.

Also wanted to mention to check the Goodyear Weatherready it is a true 4 season all season tire, most all season tires are 3 season tires, pricey but worth research.

Yup. Had no clue I had a flat. The car didn't drive any differently or sound different. Goodyear Weatherready is about the same price so I'll check into that.

Is a 215/55/R16 tire going to be fine? Friend is suggesting a Conti ExtremeContact DWS which doesn't come in 205/65/R16.

Nokian eNTYRE can be had for super low prices on amazon with free Prime shipping. Haven't run them on my Accord, but they worked great in snow on my Subie

The Michelin Primacy MXM4s that came with the 16 are really good.
