Well generally I'm fairly aggressive, although I'm fairly rusty on standard driving in the winter, so I won't be quite as aggressive.FSRA said:well first what is your driving style, i have 14 inch wheels with weather handlers on them for fall and winter
I'm using the same tires, but I will not use them in the winter. What SIZE tires should I use, not brand.DirtyJim said:Im not sure what kind of advice I can give you on sizes, but I have the Falken Ziex ZE 512s on my car, in 17 inch size. They are the best overall performing tire I've had on the 'Scort to date. They track straight and true in the rain, handling is very good and wet and dry braking distance is great. The road noise is less than all of the other high performance tires I've tried. My Toyos that cost quite a bit more were crap in all areas of performance except steering responsiveness, but I credit that to the harder tread blocks. The Falkens are a great all weather tire, and Consumer Reports number one rated performance tire.
I live in Maine, period heh. Also, should I go with a taller or shorter tire, like a 60 series, or 70 or what?Beaverboy said:
A narrower tire A) heats up better in cold weather B) deforms more than a wide tire to create a long stable tread patch that's good for gripping snow & ice C) cuts a narrower path through thick snow... and D) provides a smoother ride.thescortgt said:
