I would like to know if others agree with me.
I'd like to put off buying these tires because of money. Might have to squeeze a little....
I figure, if I get them now. I'll wear off the glaze from manufacturing before we start getting ice. Otherwise, it might not be too swift trying to deal with ice and still have any of that glaze on the tires?

While low rolling resistance tires work well for highway travel and greater economy, I wouldn't use them for winter driving if you have to travel often on treacherous roads. Due to their harder compounds and tread design, they are usually pretty poor on snow and ice. For me, when it comes to winter driving, safety and traction are more important than saving a little gas.

I have looked into winter tires.
Also the consideration that I don't drive often on treacherous roads.
90% of the time our roads are clear and dry during winter.
The other ten percent. We drive slowly. Or we don't drive at all. Nobody condemns anybody for not going out when it's bad.
I drive a truck with no special winter tires. Only make sure the steering tires have siping. I have it cut on them. It helps. I have to drive worse roads than my car during winter.
I have to say that winter tires are impressive on ice. To slide on ice is an awful feeling. I'll go to work late on bad mornings. See many cars still off the side of the road.
I also know that winter tires do far more than 4 wheel or all wheel drive. In comparison, they are cheap.
These Pirelli's are the top rated stopping on ice. Out of all the high perfomance, all season tires, rated by consumer reports. Better than Continental purecontact, or Michelin Premier A/S. Which are the three highest rated high performance, all season tires by them.
Would be nice to have winter tires. But.... For the little I have to encounter?

That's just an advert for Pirelli, no doubt they are worried about sales as many budget tyres offer just as many benefits but at half the cost. Reviews speak for themselves, if a budget tyre rated A for effeicncy and A for wet braking is available at a lower cost than a premium brand, then I'm going to buy those. For the record, I had a set of Pirellis on my old car and they were pretty terrible in the wet, and the snow. Pays to do some homework, always get impartial advice, don't just listen to a specific manufacturer, of course they will want to sell you thier tyre.

I just thought that advertisement was cute.
You can see I didn't take their advise. I took consumer reports advise. Also reviews.
Even though these Pirelli's are still 'good' on handling and wet. They aren't as good as the Michelin's or Continental's I listed. But they are better on ice. That's most important to me.
I really don't need no high performance tire. But how Toyota designed this. The high performance, while deflated down to 32psi. It works beautifully.

I've considered the Michelin A/S energy saver. It's a low roll resistance tire. Only problem I see is nobody will mention it on ice. Nobody.
I have a personal like of Michelin. My sister had Michelin's she loved. Have to admit her car rode and drove really nice. My sister passed away. I remember Michelin with her.

EDIT: I have seen some people claiming 10% better mileage with these Pirelli's. Pirelli only claims 4% better.

We have snow tyres on the CR-V. I bought the best eco tyres available for the old i20, they were also A rated for braking in the wet.
Decent eco tyres shouldnt compromise safety in poor conditions.
I'm sure i saw somewhere most treads are cut for appearance.

Just got these put on the car. Very nice driving. I can tell already that I will get better mileage with these. Will have to see as to how much.

I wouldn't be surprised by some drop though. Brand new tires have higher rolling resistance than worn.
