Default Whats everyone using for tires?

Alright well the all mighty winter is just around the corner, and its almost time to switch back to the winter tires. Im in the market for new winter tires and Im just wondering what everyone else is using for a descent tire. I recently redid all of my suspension but havent noticed much of difference in ride since I still have the big tires on. So Im getting kinda ancy to put the original tires size back on.

Here is what I have choosen for my new winter tire so far;
Michelin Hydroedge 225 60 16

Anyone use these or have heard any complaints about road noise, etc. etc. Any suggestions of a good tire would greatly help, thanks all

Although I don't normally use Winter tires, I just rough it out with ASes, Blizzaks FTMFW Drove my friend'* car with em alot last winter, holy hell, those things rock. I'm speaking of the WS-50s but those are being phased out I think The Revo 1s are good too.

BFG Scorcher TA 255/50-17 in summer months, the Kumho KW-11'* go on in about 6 weeks, the KW-11s are incredible in the snow.

i use studded cooper weathermasters in the winter and love them, but they are verynoisy, but i've yet to loose control in the snow and i drive when the weathers at its worst...we sell alot of them where i work and we haven't had any complaints

summer i just bough 4 goodyear assurance comfort tread and so far they are great

I want to add a question here as well, hope you dont mind Trip,
please continue to answer his original question


do you guys run snows on all 4 or would the front 2 be ok?

I swap back over to my 17 inch rims for the winter.

Gummy.. all 4 or nothing

Whats the point of just having take of traction if you still cant stop or turn well.

If you have only snows in the front the back end is going to want to kick out ALL the time around corners and the Anti locks are going to kick in ALL the time when your stopping.

also i think on the 00+ you have to run the same size tires all the way around or the DIC goes nuts...
