I bit the bullet today and finally bought snow tires for my 2012 Compass Limited with all the options except Trail Rated. I searched around for the 215/55/18 size that were on it when I bought it but didn't like the prices. The dealer sent me out a flyer with the usual buy 3 get one free. So I chose to go there, to my surprise he recommended not to go with the 215/55/18's, but instead recommended 225/55/18 Cooper Basic, or even better he said to go with 235/50/18 Goodyear Ultra Performance 2. These surprisingly were the cheapest of the ones I had researched. They look great on my Compass. It's good to know the sizes available when searching for tires and not get stuck paying to much. No sign of any snow here yet, but there was one hill I tried with the stock all seasons and it was a no go, with the Snow Tires on it did it with go problem today.
