Alright guys I made it over here to Germany and was informed that during winter here is more icy than snowy... I've got stock 18's (mazda 6S) and in need of probably a good all season tire. They do checks here on base when it gets to that time when ice become a problem and then give you a 70 (euro) fine and then revoke your driving privileges until the discrepancy is fixed. So for those people who live in the icy winter states what are your opinions? I am originally from southern California so I am not used to this all season tire stuff. Any advice would be great...[/b]
You probably will find that there is no all season tire made that will satisfy the German requirements for winter traction devices. In Japan, also, all season tires are not legal in winter, and all season tires are not acceptable traction devices for travel over mountain passes in winter here in Oregon. "All season" means that a tire is equally inadequate on dry roads and on snowy roads, and hopelessly incompetent on wet roads. Get yourself some Nokians for the winter months in Germany.

2009 Mazda 6 JDM. Delivered tonight.
OE tires: Dunlop SP Sport 2050, 225/45R18 91W.
Switched to Sumitomo HTR Z II in the more realistic size of 225/60R16 98W. (Yes, I actually minus-sized the wheels and plus-sized the tires. Sue me )

lol..I just put on a set of Dunlop SP Sport Signatures 225/40R18 92W the other day. $108 a piece from TireRack.

Previously has Toyo Proxes 4, but I backed up into a very sharp curb at my friends house. I had a very narrow space to back up out of his driveway. I can't believe the curb puncture the sidewall as I backing up ever so slowly. Whatever...Under $500 w/shipping I might as well get a new set instead of under $400 for 2 new Toyos.

Injen CAI w/CP-E MAF | Grill & eyelids | Anzo clearsidemarkers | window visor | Metra kit w/Pioneer DEH-P7700MP | 18"RX-8 rims wrapped w/Dunlop SP Sport Signature l Magnaflows | R1 Concept slotted/cross-drilled rotors | Pulstar | Mazdaspeed | Cordova&#39;s Optimized TB | 35% tint |

2009 JDM Mazda 6 2.5 MTX.
Hankook Ventus V12 Evo (K110).
225/45ZR18 95Y.
Not much grip when I first had them mounted on Sunday night. I set off for a 900-mile trip from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Amman, Jordan next morning, and after about 600 miles they really started coming into their own. Grip, precision and response and self-centering are all phenomenal. Absolutely the best value for money.

Sounds like a set of spare rims and winter tires. No all-season is going to be good on ice. If you drive in remote areas, or drive every day even on the worst 3 or 4 days of the year then get studs. They&#39;re noisy, annoying and reduce traction on bare pavement but the good ones - Nokian square carbide studs - are amazing on ice, like cat claws. Look out behind you, as people without studs, chains or cables can&#39;t stop like you will with studs. Nokian is also a good bet for winter tires, the company is in Sweden.
Many people simply leave the car, take the train, take a day off when the roads are iced over but if you&#39;re going to drive over solid ice, not just a few ice patches a few times a year they are the ticket.

Personally I&#39;d take an old crappy 2nd car or the train on days like that.

I drive alot so I wanted something fairly quiet, ended up with the Big-O branded EURO TOUR at $145 each. Been very happy with them for the last 5K. I have a dead stock 03 6i 5 speed.

Just put a set of General Altimax HP&#39;s on my 04 Mazda 6 Wagon and so far I&#39;m really pleased. Haven&#39;t driven them in the rain yet, but they are quiet and feel great on dry road.
