The best snow tire ever made is the General altimax arctic. They are so good you can win a regional championship in rallycross with them, and THEN drive home. No studs needed!

Ok I might give the generals a try ! but now I have to decide between the Chinese Rims ( black ) euro rims ( silver ) ? The silver Rims are supposed to be stronger and better balanced. I guess I could spray paint them black. Cheers ?

This is what I went with. The above list isn?t exactly accurate because the correct 17 inch tire actually has a 60 aspect ratio. Cheers


Steel Wheel 17x7.0 5x100mm +48 56.1mm SIL(EUROPEAN MADE)

ALTIMAX ARCTIC 12 225/60/17 103T

$989.99 Canadian including 13% tax.

I placed a deposit of $ 250 and will likely have them installed mid November.

But we all know what’s cheaper than snow tires. It’s skill. That’s right folks. Snow tires don’t give you any performance edge while in motion, especially around corners. The compound keeps the tread block from becoming compacted. And the studs only help you get moving from a dead stop. I’ve often said snow tires and chains are faux confidence.

Whereas skill, well, skill is everything. It enables you to launch, stop, corner, maintain stability at speed. Skill>band aids.

i went with Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 winter tyres and they are amazing !
winter is irrelevant too me now. The Crosstreks All wheel drive and traction control help as well.
