I run BFG comp T/A VR4 in 225/60/15 on mine. I bought them at Costco last
yr - special order. About $400 out the door. I ran 205/60/15 studded snow
tires all winter here in MT.  The difference in the BFG's is rather dramatic
I found out a week ago when we had 3 inches of slushly snow on the road.
They did OK, but were nowhere near the snows. Are you sure you can't get the
BFGs comp T/A in 225/60?
