    do you see snow in the winter? Rota has a sticker that basically says if the finish on your rims goes to shit becuase of road salt, your on your own, so keep that in mind.

    And again, what brand tires does that place stock?

    We don't use salt here, and I meant all season as more of the rain, rotas won't be seeing snow. Any how still wanting opinions on schwabs tires.

    there is no schwabs in my neck of the woods... so i don't know what they sell. but according to their website, the only brand on there that i even recognize is the Toyo's... and the fz4's suck horribly, and the T1s are way more of a comp tire than a daily driver tire.

    I'd find a different store...

    Ok basically I am up to any new store, because of what B said. So anyway. I need some good all around tires, drag and handling. Probably in the 205/55 or so. These tires need to be for dry and wet weather. All seaon except for snow and ice.


    Thanks

    Everyone knows what's coming....

    I love Potenza S-03's, in 195/50-15 (15 x 7). They handle great in wet weather, which is what I looked into when buying tires...they had the #1 rating in the 15 inch tire sizes...95 ea. plus shipping on tirereack.com (they were 78 ea. a few months ago :( )
