Hello Jim
I have Toyo Snoprox on my 6x15s for the winter and I have been very pleased 
with them. My wheels are a bit shabby but the winter messes wheels up anyway 
so its no problem. The big benefit is that the car so much nicer to drive on 
the 6" rims than the 8's I run in the summer. The Snowprox is a mud and smow 
tyre and copes well with the sh**ty slush that passes for snow here in sunny 
England. They're not too expensive either.

eggs with bacon - now I'm hungry!)
