Well, for some of us it's time to start thinking about new tires for the winter.
First, even though they say "all-season" and are great on dry and wet pavement,
I'm assuming my 205/50/15 Dunlop D60s won't quite cut it.  Besides, I want to
protect my wheels from the harsh winter.

If I go with snows, I'll be looking to mount them on my 14x6 oe wheels.  The
stock tire on the 4KQ is a 195/60/14.  Should my snow tire be the same size, or
can/should I go with a slightly narrower tire -- say a 185/65/14?  The 185/65/14
is only .25" taller than stock.

Checked out Tire Rack's Web page.  They show the Bridgestone Blizzak, Dunlop
Graspic S100Z, and Pirelli 190P in my size.  The Blizzaks are significantly more
expensive than the Dunlops.  Are the Blizzaks that much better?  I might be
inclined to go with them, but the winters are not _that_ bad here in the slush
