    Hi, I live in New Hampshire so we get a good amount of snow here. I currently have Goodyear Eagle LS2 tires in 195/65/15 on my 2004 4motion. I'm wondering if Toyo Proxes 4 will be better in the snow in 225/40/18. I'm wondering if the higher quality will make them better n the snow even though...

    Hey everybody. After pulling the trigger on some stuff for my Passat, I've decided that I am going to return everything back to stock, sell the car and start over. I recently acquired a Toyota MR2 turbo that needs a bit of work, and decided that's going to be my new summer project and future...

    I read 195/65/r16 are the best for snow tires on a 99. Would 205/55/r16 work okay? I found a deal on a set of them.
