I'm going to go with Michelin Crossclimate tires when the Ecopia's wear out on my '13S. The Ecopia's are fair at best in the snow, I went with Crossclimate's on my work vehicle and they are worlds better than the Continental A/S's that were on it. The Crossclimate's are quieter and much better in the snow, they are snow/ice rated like a winter tire but also rated for the summer use, IOW you don't have to take them off in the summer, they also have the 3-peak icon on the tire. We went with real snows(Blizzacks for a real good price, if price wasn't a factor I would have gotten Michelin X-ice3's which I believe have a lower RR and longer wear) on our '12's mainly because it already had summer tires in real good shape but now I have to pay the $50-60 twice a year to have the tires swapped. Now I suppose you could look for some steel wheels to avoid that cost but then you'd have to pay extra for the TPMS or live without them in the winter when you probably need them the most. The Blizzacks are excellent in snow but not that much better than the Crossclimates to make it worth it IMO.
The Crossclimate's also come in a 5-ply load range C tire, which I got on my work van which is the same size as my '13S Leaf and I'm seriously considering that for my Leaf. They don't cost all that much more, load range C Crossclimates in 205 55 16's were $110/tire and according to the tire guy they wear longer and probably have a lower RR due to less sidewall flex. The downside would be a stiffer ride. The Crossclimate's aren't wear rated but the tire guy thought they'd be around a 500 treadwear rating and possibly better if I went with the load range C tire as I'm thinking.
