Hi,
I just got a set of 16" QT (Quantum Tech) rims with 205/55 R16 Cooper snow tires.

I noticed a little bit of rubbing...when backing out of my parking spot.. so I went back.. to either switch the rim...or the tire...

To make a long story short...
they put the nitto 450's on in a 205/50 R16..

I'm worried if these tires are any good in the snow.. I hear they are pretty good tires for most surfaces.. but will they work well in the snow????


btw.. if you are anywhere near CT.. don't buy anything from Tires Plus Wheels... they have no clue what customer services means..


also..im trying to put a few pics in here.. but i dont know if they'll work.. here goes

I had the Nitto NT-450's (225/45 ZR17) on my Accord...they worked well in the snow...Never had a problem getting up my driveway or any problems on the road. I just don't know how they'll be on rear wheel drive.

Yeah, don't use html. Use the
tags. Like this
and just don't put the spaces between the
tags and the address.
