Hey Mile,

I have a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium with the 18" tires. I live in Wisconsin and needless to say the tires i have on now, suck in the snow.
So my question is should I go with the 16" tire or 15" tire? I'm currently looking at the 195/65R15 general Altimax Arctic tire with the steel wheel package. From what I've heard it's best to go to a 15" tire but then you suffer handling wise. What can I expect handling wise and spedometer change if I do go with the 15"?

Thanks!
