Having dedicated winter tires is nice.

I'd avoid that Dunlop... think of the purpose of the tire in the winter... and look at the tread.

Cut into ice and hold...at the same time..having space and channeling for snow to compact into and be released as the tire rotates.

this is what i got, and let me tell you they are good tire!....just ask Boostys lawn


the problem with the tires you chose is that the dont have alot of Latteral bitting edges (the little slots) so they will be good for snow but not ice

:( :(
they also dont have the size i need in those...

im going to put them on my old 15" wheels..

225x70R15'*.. or was it 65... i forget right now.. but they have to be less then 27.2" tall and more then my old tires(205x75R15) i want to go stock for my ear/trim or a little bigger like the 225...

the 27.2" is how tall my new tires are(235x55R17)
