I just picked up a set of Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 for only $57.10 each.
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 #1: If your stock tires are not 16" (for example, 235/60R16), then STOP! You can't use the Blizzaks unless you buy a separate set of 16" wheels that fit your vehicle. If you do buy another set of wheels and have a newer vehicle, you'll probably need new TPMS sensors as well.

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 [tiresize.com] 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.

Link [tirerack.com] to Tire Rack's Winter Tire Tech area.

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.

Yes, I would say you can put these on your vehicle. These tires will just be a hair wider than what the manufacturer suggests. Do your own research to be sure.

Also FYI: Some places will not install the tires unless they match perfect with the manufacturer's recommended size (i.e Walmart Tire & Lube).

They will be 20mm wider and 24mm in additional diameter, or 4/5" and 1". Normally that would not be much of an issue, just check the clearance your tires have now when the wheel is turned to a stop in each direction. My car came with 205's and I currently run 245's with no rubbing, and no modifications.

This is the correct size tire for an Oldsmobile Aurora. In case anyone reading is driving one.

Many cars these days come with multiple wheel options and staggered sizes, so even if you identify these cars, they won't fit all of them.

That said, I find it hard to understand how people don't know their wheel and tire sizes off hand. I mean, many people are probably getting screwed buying tires if you don't even know your sizes...

Walmart in my area will mount a chihuahua to your hood if you paid them, they don't care.

I got an amazing deal on some used tires that match my truck, slightly different size than stock. They were more than happy to install them and the tech even wanted to know where I got them so cheap.
