    I need some economical all season tires soon. My Toyo Proxes suck in any type of snow, and the sidewall is too small for my liking.
    I looked at the Yokohama Avid V4's on discounttiredirect.com They run under $80, are all season, are 205/50/16's.
    Anything else recommended?

    do you plan on spending money on like mounting and balancing and such? because I just recommend going to an old honda yard and going through the tires, I got 4 brand new snow tires on steelies for like 80 bucks total.

    Nice specs, but they cost $30 more a tire =(
    I dunno, I think Toyo place will buy back my tires based on the tread left. It's some roadhazard deal I bought, so I'll see how it goes. Does Kumho make any good 205/55/16's? or 50 series that run good on snow?
