I have the Michelin Xi3s on my Accent with the OE steel 14" wheels. Second winter for them and they are a size wider than OE at 185/70s. It will claw through snow until it gets lifted by it from being too deep.

Bio synthetics? GET was successful only in giving G-Oil away. RLI offers a number of such oils at fairly high prices. It'll be interesting to see this Castrol product on the shelves at Walmart and maybe to try it if it's offered with a good introduc

If the battery gets acid on the top or around the post and you add water then you lower the gravity. A larger than normal battery with a lower specific gravity (around the 'fair' numbers) will last longer.
