I have the exact same set of tires. Hankook Ipike's but the size is 195/60/15. Got them used for just over $200. They were basically in brand new shape, still made the new squeaky tire noise when I first had them on the road!

There was one snowy day here where I got a chance to test them. These tires will make you angry, as you stick to the bumper of the driver ahead, and cuss under your breath at their inferior traction.

They handle the dry pavement pretty poorly though, but this is my first time using winter tires so I didn't know what to expect. They are really forgiving. You can break traction on command. Cool tread pattern, too!
