RE: Snows for 5kcstq

If anyone is interested I have a couple of sets of slightly used 15" snows
for sale. I will post the sizes when I get back to Vt, but one set is Hak's
off my 87 5KCSTQ (my wife convinced me she also needed Hak 1's w/ studs) and
the other is Cooper Weather Master off of my son's Subaru (he also informed
me that he also NEEDED Hak's). Both are in good condition with many miles to

Hi all,
I'm getting snows for my new 5kcstq and would like some input as
to what size and what tire.

I have a line on some cheap "aero" 5kt/tq wheels, so I plan on using
them. I think they are 15x6, not entirely sure, but definitely 15 inch.

What size snow tires will work with these wheels on a 5ktq? I was
thinking 185/70/15. Is that correct, or do I need something lower
profile, like 185/65/15?

What tires? Pirelli doesn't make Winter 210 Assimmetricos in these
15 inch sizes, so I need to find an alternative. I need something
long lasting, with good dry performance as we don't get that much
snow and ice in Philly/NJ/NYC. How are the older Winter 210Ps?
I'll have to see if Dunlop Winter Sport M2s are available in this
size as well. I'm not going with Blizzaks or Guardexes because these
tires get really sketchy in the dry. BTDT with the Guardex on a Jetta
GLI. First time I experienced a bad case of lift-throttle oversteer.
