Default Snow Tires for 3.2 TL-S

Can anyone recommend snow tires for the 17" rims that come with the 2003 3.2
TL-S?

The OEM Michelins are terrible in the snow and develop side-wall bubbles
frequently when hitting potholes.

I don't think there are any snow tires available for those rims. A
better choice might be the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 all season tire, which
outperforms the stock Michelins in every catagory and costs less.

You can compare tires at www.tirerack.com.

I put Yokohama Ice Guard IG721 on mine Nov 03. I need to up one size to a
225/45/17. They fit right on the original rim. So far they have been very
good here in CT. We got some good snowfalls so far this year. They are not a
high speed tire, but they handle better than the original. They are a
uni-directional tire, so make sure they are mounted properly. They are
wearing well, but I am a low mileage driver. No problems with the fit !!
