205/55/16 is very close to stock diameter.

I'm quite happy with the Pilot Alpins.  I spend most
of the winter on dry or wet roads in the bay area,
and every weekend at Tahoe, where it is either sunny
and dry, or dumping like nothing else.  The Pilots
get me through the deep stuff as well as over Donner
Summit when the road is pretty crappy with lots of
confidence.  Though I must say that my old '91 coupe
quattro with all seasons was at least as good.
'Course, that car had 90 less hp and no turbo to
kick in suddenly.  Big torque and slippery roads are
poor bedfellows, so I guess it is no surprise the S4
is a little less stable on winter roads.
