Gs430 Winter Tires?


Recommended Posts

I've got a GS430 and I just moved from Ft Lauderdale, FL to Denver, Colorado. I've never even seen snow before, let alone driven in it.

I currently have BridgeStone RE030 235/45ZR17 tires on my GS430. Does anyone know if these are ok for driving in snow and ice? Or do I need another type of tire? If so, any suggestions on what kind of tire I would need for winter driving or perhaps something all season???

Thanks for replies...

If you decide to go with winter rubber in that exact size, your looking at pretty large costs ($200 per tire!) YOu might want to consider going for a 16" set of winter tires on steel wheels (size 225 55 16). The best choices are:

- Hankook Ice Bear W300

- Bridgestone Bllizzak WS-50 or LM-22 (althought not a fan of Bridgestones)

- Toyo Garit HT or Snowprox S950

In an all season application in the 235 45 17 size I'd suggest:

- Pirelli pzero nero M & S (as mr. courious suggests)

- Michelin Pilot Sport A/S

- Continental Extreme Contact

- Toyo Proxes 4

Good Luck! B)
