Default New snow tires

I got my new Goodyear GW3's installed. Man, they are nice! If you
pardon the pun, they are miles ahead of the OEM Michelin MXV4 crap I
had on there.

I put 2 and 2 together and got 22.

Bruno;

What car do you have them on? Size?

I've always had MXV for my Legend, but the are all season tires, not snows,
and I need tires soon again.

2001 TL. I got the same size as OE (205/60R16) and mounted them on the
OEM rims. I'll be shopping for 17" rims in the spring.

I gotta tell you. I drove a bit today, and I am still amazed at the
difference these tires make. They are so quiet and smooth, it's
spooky! And the handling! Paid $158 CAD each for them, though. But you
get what you pay for.

I will never buy Michelin again.

The factory Michelin's are crap just like the rotors, transmission,....
Bridgestone Turanza's are much better.

I went to the Goodyear site; only tires they have are Eagles LS. 15". S,
T, or H rating (mine takes V).

Any other snow tire suggestions?

Will you ever drive faster than 130 mph (210 km/h) with winter tires? I use
H rated winter tires and their handling is as good as my V rated summer
tires.
