Winter is around the corner ! You'll need GREAT ARCTIC proven tyres (tire I know) You wanna what's best out there ; then this is for you !! Bought these babies (Nokian WR) last year and they are awesome , so much better handling than my O.E. Michelin Pilots ! That I can't wait for winter again !!!
BTW I use these Nokians (pics below) only in winter with the OEM Silver Mags ; as I have my stock Michelins on my Chromed-dipped OEM mags

These were so tight that it required 110 , 110 , 120 , 110 lbs of pressure to pop them on the mags ; the sidewall was so stiff , and it shows on lateral handling compared to regular (soft-side-walled) winter tires that make you feel like you're riding on baloons like the new Yokohama Ice Guard IG10 I used to own on my old Acura Integra ! Was scary changing lanes ; felt like I was going to fishtail , they were so soft as with most winter tires .


They have so many advantages , one of them being :
Only four-season family of tires that carries the Severe Service Emblem exceeding new government snow condition regulations

with a threadwear of 400 (won't get a threadwear reading on winter tires) they will last forever !!!
, read all about it here you owe it to yourselves ! :

Right now I have the stock Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S in 215/45R18.

If I have extra money laying around and I get new rims, I would mount Advan Neova AD07s in 225/45R18.

Call your dealer to get the most expensive quote and then go hunting maybe for used ones in the for sale section , as for tires same applies .. many sites have discounts too

Here in Canada the dealer sells them 325 CDN a piece for the mags . My Nokians at some tire shop cost me 980 full serviced & tx incl.

I bought 16" steelies with Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 tires for about $600 at Tirerack.com, although that was two years ago. I'd stick with 16" wheels and 205/60-16 tires. Not only are they MUCH less expensive than 17" wheels/tires, but they're also slightly narrower with a thicker sidewall than the OEM 17" tires, both advantages in the snow.

Hi, per Mz6greyghost, between $600-$800. If possible locate a set of OEM 16" steel rims and go with the 205/60-16 size. From time to time folks here will sell their steelies for $25-$35/each. TireRack may have some as well, though priced higher. Junkyards are another possibility. Since you're in Cleveland check Consumer Tire and see what kind of deal you can get on 4 Nokians (WRs or RSIs - both are studless). They were very price competitive when I bought from them.

everyone says that and that's where their thinking stops ...... well I went a bit further and thought about 'contact patch %' .... 'cause when on the ice , after the plough has passed (as in 90% city conditions) this is where you want ALL the contact you can get to STOP !
A mere extra 10 mm (1 cm) will still dig no problem in the snow ....
.... thicker sidewall on most winter tires that sport 16in. will feel soft on lateral change of lanes and you'll feel like you're about to fishtail as it gives more flex and that's ennerving enough to make you counteract into worse shit (at least until you get used to it-but I continued hating the insecure feeling) .
If you still have your O.E. silver 17's use them for winter (look better than steelies) and next year buy your favourite mags/tires with your tax return

Want the best handling stiff walled /no compromise winter thread in a world first 4season tire that holds the SEVERE WINTER CONDITIONS government label ..... look no further than the Nokian WR ..... trust me you'll thank me !!!
Now go back to the previous page again and reread my post with links/pics & after that and Skibum's comments above ; see this other member's testimonial on them http://forum.mazda6club.com/index.php?s=&a...st&p=784544

Just purchased some Goodyear Assurance TripleTred's for my 16" stockers. Tires sizes is 215 55R16 a little wider for the 16x6 rim. They look fine Drives like im on rails in the rain, and they are nice for dry as well. hopefully the snow will be about the same.
