Default need tire size for my new rims

Well it took me a while but i bought new rims
they are 15x6 inch steel stock replacements for a 99 bonny. I do not know the size i need for my snow tires. if anyone can help that would be great. BTW from what i heard firestone blizzacks are the best right ????
thanks

You can also go with 205/70R15, a bit taller narrower tire for winter wouldn't hurt. the size is fine cause the same tire sizes apply to my 1990 Cutlass Supreme.
Go for whatever size is the cheapest, save the money for the real mods.

yeah actually your suggestion is better for hardcore snow performance, since its always better to have taller and narrower in snow (take a look at rally tires sometime).

Snow tires???.... what an odd concept... I hope I never have to learn that. I will be getting more stuff up on Angry Duck Tofu Racing.com, we have alot more products now. And Jet Chips makes a nice hook in chip to tune your car better, I am going to purcahse one eventually and take one for the team and see if it does something.
