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?

i agree..i have these yokies wrapped on my rims and they own! they have awsome water handling, but the down side is you cannot use them in snow! not much snow down here in texas B)
