Hey guys...

I have an interesting questions... I have no place to store my 17' rims for the winter and I need new tires badly... I know All Seasons are sort of B.S., but anything is better than what I experinced last winter...

So are any suggestions on a good 215/45/17 all season for the stock 17" rim...

I have heard Bridgestone and Continenntals are good... Also what price should I be expecting to pay....

Thank you for your time...

Even the crappiest winter tire is better than the best all-season
in the snow... It's too bad you are unable to store winters :pissed:

Sometimes dealerships and tireshops will store your tires for a fee.
My old work would do it for $100 for the season -- it's worth a shot.

Goodluck!!

Greatest All Season Tire known to man:

Michelin Pilot Sport All Season - they are expensive but worth every penny. They are the only all season tire I know that will drive like a summer tire when it's dry, get grippier (sp?) when it's wet and won't leave you stuck in the snow.

I got mine from Tire Rack last fall.

p.s. got the 225 not 215 width (on stock rim)

Sorry Juan, did'nt realize it was you. I hope you're not really considering driving that "450 monster" as per Marc in the winter months. You'll be like B-sled in the snow.
