I live in Quebec. We have 4 good months of snow. Good part of my driving is done on the highway and there is ice and a lot of slush but since i will be more adventurous with my jeep than my accord i will go also in some snow covered road in the country side. I need to buy 4 plain winter rim offcentric i was told to choose.
I'm in Quebec too, I was just wondering which part of Quebec (big province
I'm *en Abitibi* so roughly 5 months of winter. I guess you're in the Montreal area (less cold and less ice but more slush).
Honestly, I suggest Blizzaks. Toyos are good, so are Vredestein Wintracs, Altimax Arctic (I would stud these though). Michelin X-Ice are good on ice, but not for slush/soft snow.
The wheels you need are "hub centric", not off centric. Hub centric means the center hole on the wheel fits precisely on the hub, providing alignment and some load support for the wheel. You can buy non hub centric wheels too, but then you'd need to buy what are called *hub centric rings* that match the wheel's center hole diameter to the hub's.
Do you want steel rims ? Alloys ? I bought mine last year online from an outfit near Sherbrooke. PMC Tire. They ship for free, and if you choose a tire/wheel package they mount and balance them for free too. They have alloy wheels good for winter, and also steel rims if you prefer those (and they are cheaper of course..).
Costco also sells winter tires and wheels (steel and alloy) if you are a member...
Most tire manufacturers offer mail-in rebates right now for winter tires. Check those out too.
