What he said. I run 18s in summer and 16s in winter. Just go on tire rack and do a winter tire search for your car. It will show you your useable sizes with no need for calibration.As long as you're running a 215/60/16 tire on 16" steelies, there is no calibration needed. You will still have a comparable size to your 18" tires.
Yes, they have good traction but not so good handling in corners.I also got Michelin Xi3's installed. Happy with them so far. I find visually that they don't look as beefy or tready as other winter tires I see, but seem to do the trick. Good traction and I think pretty decent in dry conditions also.
The GY UGI WRT is great, see if you can do a 30-day swap out. I love them on my Accord. I forget that I am on a snow tire.Unfortunately Goodyear discontinued high performance winter tires (Ultra Grip GW3) of compatible size which I used for years before on two previous cars. I settled for Michelin X-Ice Xi3. Oh boy, what's the difference. Michelin have much softer sidewall and do not handle in corners as good as Goodyear. So read reviews and choose right tire for you.
Usually the higher rating the better car handling.Not sure if speed ratings mean anything on a snow tire. Really, who is getting up to 112, 130, or 150.
Grip, wet, ice, and snow braking is what is important with a snow tire, not whether it is T, S, H, V, Z, or W.
