    ford puts 245/45/17's on from the factory...40's will thow your speedo off


    as far as tires in the snow, i'd get a set of 15" V6 rims. they are a dime a dozen and w/ the 205 (narrower tire), you get a lot better traction in snow

    Kumho Ecsta ASX are what I had on my 04. Best tires I had. You can usually find them for about $100-$120 at the usual places like discount tire, tire rack, etc.

    I had 2 sets sets of Bridgestone Potenza G-009s (in 225/55-16) and the only real problems I had were getting going from a stop in packed snow and ice and on inclines. I was pretty happy with them for all around driving and decently maintained roads.

    Uhhh, meaty = width (too wide)

    45 is the aspect ratio. 245/45 is 45% of 245 mm.

    "45" does NOTHING for the width of your tire.

    I changed to Falken Zeix 512's this winter. Best tire I've had. Great wet traction, and decent in the snow.

    I took my old stock rims and threw studded snow tires on them, best way to get around the snow and ice, just have to remember to change them out with your other rims when the snow isn't around. ...Of course it's easier to exchange the wheels when you have a garage and a speed jack, since here you wait 10 minutes and usually the weather is changing :D

    Uhhh, a question about which all-season tires perform best has NOTHING to do with appearance! Besides, tires are black and round and sometimes have lettering in different colors on the side. That's it. How's it going to improve the appearance of your car? Drop it! We aren't going to get into this subject! What's done is done! Keep your threads in the correct section!!!
