snapp then.... i guess i won't be getthing those tires.... lol


i think im gunna be testing out the new Michelin X-Ice Xi2

for 15in rims..... the spec are... 205/60/15 - 91T - they are from tirerack.com and only 68 a tire??? on sale i believe. they are new tires(new style) but already heard great things about them.


i was thinkin steelies, but i already got 3 sets of rims in the garage... euro/6spoke svt/ 12 or 14 spoke ses.... which is curb rashed up the but... but ill be mounting snow tires on that 1.


and of course the stock 1's i got on mine...

you you be even better off with 195/60/15 since thats the stock size for the 15" rims and better yet if you can find some 185/65/15, narrow tires are better in the winter, because they "cut" thru the snow, the wider the tire it acts more like a plow

i've only seen 195 and 205 for those tires at tire rack...

if i got to 195, then it will be 21 dollar more per tire.... 84 extra... worth it?

no not for that much, try looking at blizzaks, and other brands, the michelin you chose is a great snow tire, but there are others that are cheaper and can perform just as well
