Default Nokian WR 205/55 R16

Those tires would go on my 2002 RSX-S. I've been having a problem with
traction in the winter using Michelin Pilots, So I want to put the Nokians
on in the late fall.

Locally they are 143.99 ea. mounted and balanced plus tax. Can I get them
cheaper online? Any comments on those tires or have another tire
recommendation?

Thanks,

Dave M.

For winter I recommend a seperate set of smaller diameter, steel
wheels with narrower tires that have a higher sidewall. That keeps
your alloy wheels out of the salt and slush and saves the wear and
tear and the expense of mounting and rebalancing tires twice a year.

Thanks, I intended to use only the Nokias year-round. The steel wheels I
found were $80.00 ea. I just don't want to spend the money. With the steel
wheels and snows, I'll have to dish out about $700.00 for winter and I will
need new summer tires for at least $560.00 for half-way decent quality.
That's $1260.00. However, now that I think about it, that beats an insurance
surcharge for an accident.
