Wow, that is a GREAT deal on a great tire!
I was going to get those on my other car (205/55/16) but Discount Tire couldn't get them. They would have been about $400 w a family discount. Although those tires do pretty well in snow, you really need to make sure you are on top of the alignments and rotations. They tend to wear out on the edges which happens to be where most of your traction comes from if you do not keep a really good eye on rotation and alignment. Other than that, they are great and should get decently close to the 90k miles. I ended up going with Yokohama Avid Ascends instead.
I too went up a size on my versa, 195/65/15 with Bridgestone Turanza w/ Serenity tires. Mileage did drop off by about 4-5 mpg in city dropping but only about 1 mpg on the highway. If you have a sedan and live in a snowy climate you will notice that the wheel wells do clog with snow substantially more often and then freezes into a solid chunk of ice.
