Smiles, whose resorting to insults now? Not once did I directly insult you with such items as the bolded areas above. I simply was pointing out inaccuracies in your first post, which still stand. I never attacked you personally, only your posts.Smiles said:We can debate about this for hours miscreant, but unfortunately I dont have the time! If you can't understand what I am saying thats to bad cause you missing out. Esspecially if you dont understand what med. grade tires are....if you were in the business at all you WOULD know what that is! Also having limited selection of tires because of bolt patterns means you will have to buy only a certain wheel because there arent many available meaning they will be a special purchase! Therefore that is what I meant by a special winter tire! Good enough clarification?? Or should I elaborate more? Or maybe use only one syllables word for you? If that makes it easier I can.......I know you can make out what I have said in my first post now that youve proally read it a few times and things are starting to make sense.....try using the old brain its there for a reason or maybe research what I am talking about insteading of trying to put me down! Its not apprecaited at all......is that how you get a boost in self esteem? put ppl down? try to make the new guy to the forum look bad?
S8ER99 said:No... you are not speaking clearly enough. We understand these are not 360 Triple A Z rated tires .. not a problem. Mid grade? Sure...
The tire itself will fit on any 16 inch rim provided its for a 16 inch tire ..regardless of bolt pattern.

Are you in the military? You seem to have military approach when typing. Not meaning it in a bad way, you seem just very stern in your typing. You also seem to know a whole lot more than the rest of us, which is not a bad thing, considering if I went in to buy tires I would have no clue what I needed, other than tires. Always remember different people take things different ways, what may not offend you or me, may offend someone else.
haha.. gee...wonder why. I am willing to bet you don't go cruising in the rain muchHambone said:My tires must be bad on my Grand Am. They are goodyear 14X32 and sometimes they will spin on a poorly prepped race track under full throttle, let alone the rain.
I'm not trying to rip you, I'm only pointing out inaccuracies.Smiles said:Special meaning limited availablility....I know a 16" is a 16"......a bolt pattern is a bolt pattern....its just limited selection here in the forest city (this is a fact...meaning you can only purchase them in specific locations e.g. a gm dealership) I think thats pretty specail....
You'll need 17" wheels at minimum from what we have determined so far.Wannahavegtpcoupe said:I have 18 inch eagle LS tires on my GTP and find they don't have as much traction in snow as I would like. Anybody that has already switched to snow tires and steel rims that could post the info on what they bought would be appreciated. On the weekend I tried to climb a small snow covered hill (5 inches of snow) to get out of a driveway and for a while I thought I might not make it as the car started to slide sideways on the front end. I realize that the rims will not be 18 inch rims.
You don't have to worry about 'top end' power until you can bark 2nd~3rd gear in an automatic at 79mph. haha.. (obviously if anyone out there is making more than 400hp you know what I am talking)SCGA1 said:My car came with the 'W' rated Bridgestone Potenza RE050A's. If you put the power down hard, they will slip a liittle on a wet surface. The 3.9L has gobs of low end torque and I found it has a good amount near the top end also. I will leave these tires on for the winter. Hopefully, this Winter won't be so bad.
