I live in western Montana. My "summer tires" that do occasionally seesnow
are BFG comp TA VR4 225/60/15 - they fit fine, but I do not have the wrinkle
in the rear fender wells that some seem to have. The BFGs are just OK in the
snow - I run BFG slaloms with studs from about mid Nov to early April. Major
difference, but the Comp TAs are adequate for light snow duty.
