Snow Tires

I'm looking for a set of snow tires, and was thing about the Blizzak WS-70's. Also, I have 2002 CV Sport with 17'' wheels. Do you think I should put 16'' tires on, or stay with the 17's. Also, would putting 16'' wheels on effect anything? I recently read 16'' snow tires produce better tracktion.

Thank you.

Re: Snow Tires

size difference will throw off the speedometer... size of tire wont affect car none if it is same type of tire... only thing a smaller tire will do is cause the car to want to spin tires easier which i doubt you wanna do

Re: Snow Tires

Go for the General Altimax Arctic. They're amazing. And far, FAR cheaper than Blizzies.
