Sock tire size is 215/60/16'*
Well, the Toyo Proxes TPT'* would be a good choice, but Mike is on a budget and lives in New England where, when the sky'* are not cloudy all day, it can also Snow alll day! And THIS winter has been brutal here in the Northeast. I personally run with Pirelli P400 Touring Tires on my H-body. They are a low noise, nice riding(comfortable), handle nice, wear well, and is Easy on the wallet(about $60 each). That said, I would NOT run these tires in the New England snow Unless there was a plow in front of me!!! I am one of the Few, The Proud, and The Brave that use Snow Tires in the winter. I would also recommend that you go to http://www.tirerack.com/index.jsp
and read what other people say about some of the tires you may be interested in.
