Thanks!
It tool me about 30 seconds to find that size in a Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 at Discount Tire online. At the time, a few weeks ago, they had the best price on that particular tire so I bought them and some wheels online and had them go to my local Discount Tire store where I had them installed. I love the tires so far by the way. I haven't used them in the snow yet but what Blizzak is not great in the snow? They are quiet and grippy on dry and wet roads so far.
