My bad thought I read 16 inch tire sorry you could always put them up for sale on kijiji or for trade for some 16" tires. You could always try and if it does not work you have a few months before winter anyways to figure stuff out
Are you saying that the G6's Origional all season tires are "BAD" or any all season tires are for a G6??Just thought to let you people know who needs winter tires ....http://www.tirerack.com/ has the best deals around, even if you don't have no idea which tires are for your car ..they have recomended set/ sizes for each car.
Anyway I am getting this week 4 tires and rims for my G6 GT 2005 for total $771.52 deliverd home and ready to mount.
4 16x6.5 MSW Type 15 Silver In Stock $86.00 $344.00
20 Required lugnut for vehicle In Stock N/C N/C
4 P215/60R-16 Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice In Stock $86.00 $344.00
4 Mount and Balance (No Charge) N/C N/C
1 Griot's wheel care sample kit In Stock N/C N/C
The original all season tires are BAD ...they slip like crazy. One thing I can say is the cheapest snow tires are better from most expensive all season tires.
I have for my other car (99 Grand Marquis "Interceptor") KUMHO KW11 snow tires ....have 4 seasons on them and still left at least 2 more winters, you know what is the best part ....SNOW PLOW FOLLOWS MY TRACKS (with a 50lb. sand bag in trunk)
Update: just added another TANK to my fleet ...Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport, sorry to say but Pontiac G6 GT sucks comparing to Crown Vic P74
There is nothing to it ...just bolt them on.Tirerack will mount and balance the tires for me, once this is done, would I be able to put them on the car myself, or are there additional measures that need to be taken that a tire shop would be better suited to handle?
Thank you in advance for all your help!!
Can you use snow tires all year long? Why don't ppl do that?? TY in advance!!Original all season tires on my G6 are terrible for rain/ snow ...
Seasonal tires are way to go if you have room for storage, I ran out of storage room for my 3rd (Crown Victoria) car so I got myself ultra high performance all season tires 'Fierce Instinct ZR' with 30k service life ....so far they are holding on rain like it's dry ...but I'm sure that wont be the case in snow ?!
Anyhow ...last feb. here in Chicago-land we got hit with nice blizzard ...guess who was the only maniac at 6am on road? ..me ...and snowplows ...I was laughing like crazy to people in SUV's out in ditch while I was cruising in G6
All three (meaning your original size as well), of these have the same (within 2%) overall diameter and rollout. You wouldn't need to adjust anything. You however need to be aware that you will have a much taller sidewall, so your ride and handling will be affected due to the sidewall flex. Your ride should move towards softer and more roll ion corners. Maybe not a real issue for you, but something to be aware of.In going on Tire Rack it recommends that I go either to 225/55/17 or 225/65/16.
If I choose to go with the 225/65/16, are there any adjustments that need to be made to the car to ensure that there are no complications due to the tire size difference? Would I be better off going down to only the 225/55/17?
