Nordman 7s. Link:

There hasn't been any snow here, just cold weather, and I'll be returning to Virginia in about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks; I'm kinda thinking on passing on the winter tires and just keep running the RE92s..

Is it worth it though? I've heard that's fairly hard to access on the Insight. Especially since turn signals aren't on much so the electrical savings would be minimal compared to the cost of the LEDs.
