Editor's Notes & Price Research
Please see our forum thread for additional information & fitment. ~persian_mafia
Excellent deal - Amazon has these tires stocked at almost triple the price.
This is very special closeout pricing. Shipping was about $11 per tire, and they arrived quick.
I love these tires - I won't drive in the snow without them.
Once you go Blizzak, you'll never go Blizzback.
Warning #2: Your speedometer and odometer are calibrated for the original tire diameter, and any deviation roughly greater than 3% from that stock diameter will cause inaccurate speed display AND incorrect odometer reading.
Warning # 3: If you vary too far from original tire specs you can screw up the handling of the vehicle and/or cause tire fitment problems in the wheel well. Be careful!
Go here for a tire size calculator. Go to the "Input Tire Sizes" area. Fill in your stock tire size in the "Tire 1" area, and the Blizzaks' 235/60R16 in the "Tire 2" area and hit the "Compare Tire Sizes" button. You can see the percentage of diameter deviation between the two tires, and you can see any speedometer inaccuracy within the generated chart. Remember, 16" tires only fit on 16" rims! Tire Rack (OP's link) is a good resource for tire fitment info and as a source for an extra set of wheels.

Winter Tire Note: Most experts recommend going with an equal-sized or narrower tire than stock for driving in snow. Those with stock OEM) width tires that are 235, 245, 255, etc... should be the ones looking to purchase these. Individuals with 225, 215, 205, etc... may be able to physically fit these tires but using them would be ill-advised in winter driving conditions.
And one last thing: these are closeout tires (2013 build). They will be increasingly unavailable, so sourcing a single tire to replace one that is damaged will be either very expensive or impossible. To replace that damaged tire you will either wind up with a mismatched set on your vehicle OR you will have to replace a pair (or even all four) depending on vehicle manufacturer instructions to dealers and tire shops.
