    I've always had good luck with Blizzaks. I wonder if 15" wheels will have any issues with the brake clearance.

    well the spare tire is a full size 185/60/15 on a steel wheel so it should fit as long as the offset 47.5mm,bore 63.3mm and backspacing 149.5mm are right

    i tend to look for cheapest winters possible as i spent my whole life not having them in northern ontario without an issue, so i figured any winter tire must be better than an all season for the snow.

    I will be reusing my Hakkapeliitta r's that I had on my last car and really loved them in the snow slush and ice.. they did well on the lake too (frozen of course)
