I need to get New Tires for my 99 B5. All Stock. Except for the 16" Swing Rims. I was looking at the Ventus 225/50HR16s... Pretty good price @ 76.99 per. I am wanting a good wearing, Quiet Tire. Right Now I have the Contact CH95 225/50... They seem TOO noisy and really run like SH!T in the Snow. Thankfully, we don't get too much of that in NC but, try to go skiing and you get bumped off the road by Mini-Vans!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: I am from NY and have MUCH experience in the Snow... This Car does NOT like the CH95s in the Snow!!!

Any thoughts on the Ventus by Hancock Tires???

I have them and they are nice. Granted that I have never had 18" tires before and also that I have not done any engine modifications and don't tear up the road. And mine are 225/40HR18's so maybe I haven't told you a damn thing at all :p Anyway just that my experience has been good w/them.

Are these the R-compounds? If so, I've heard good things from some of the Miata guys who auto-X with them. Some even prefer them over the Kumho Victoracers. I may try them some day.
