...Hopefully this time after I get my new set some idiot doesn't decide to total my car again.
I put these on my Soul as well. Expensive, but good going thru mountains.I'm using the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady these days as three-season tires. No complaints. They handle well in all weather I've tested them in, and have a 3PMSF rating for severe weather.
I still use studded snow tires for the coldest months, but the WeatherReady tires give me some extra confidence for those unexpected blizzards we tend to get around here in the spring and fall.
We do get some torrential downpour here in North FL and the tires have performed OK, but I try to drive with care and tone down the aggression during those occasions.

Full disclosure regarding the mileage: I purchased it in March 2017 with 3K miles on it. The previous owner was an elderly lady who said there was an odd AC smell that Kia could not replicate. She threatened to take Kia to court; Kia didn't wan tot deal with it any longer and bought it back (AKA Lemon but absolutely nothing wrong with the vehicle), and passed on the savings to me! I've averaged 7K miles a year since then.
I also live in Florida and I agree that I have also been satisfied with the original Nexen tires. My 2015 Soul! is over 6 years old, 11,000 miles and the original tires have dry rot. Replacing them with Pirelli Cintuato P7 All Season Plus II.I'm still on the stock Nexen CP671. They have 25K miles on them and have about 8/32-9/32 tread remaining. I like that the treads seem to be wearing surprisingly well; zero issues with their grip and noise. Very smooth tire IMO. Some other Soul owners can't stand them, but I'm perfectly happy with them
I have to somewhat recant my statement. I went to rotate them this past weekend; the the rear two tires cross pattern to the front and they have caused vibration and pulling. Got them balanced at the local tire shop and the symptoms persisted. The tire shop almost didn't balance them since they're 7+ years old and the rubber is becoming compromised even at 7/32-8/32 tread remaining. So looks like I'll be purchasing some tires soon. Mileage warranty won't really matter in my purchase as I'm driving about 5k a year, so whichever tires I get next, the years will surpass the mileage most likely.I also live in Florida and I agree that I have also been satisfied with the original Nexen tires.

I have the same tires on my 2020 EX. The original equipment tires were terrible on the icy slush we get here frequently in SE Pennsylvania, and after some research I put the Nokian WRG4’s on my Soul. I’ve found they are excellent for driving in heavy rain and slushy roads, but since I put them on, we haven’t had any substantial snowfall. Since I see you’re from Canada, the great white north, how are they on snow?I installed NOKIAN WRG4 All-Weathers 215/55R17 94V on my 2017.
Saves changing tires in the spring and fall.
Winter rated yet able to run year round.
Close to 110,000 km tread life rating.
