So I got sick of looking for a good price for a winter set for my '13 STi base Sedan.
I finally came to terms with having a UHP all-season, and my stock dunlop 500's (don't know why the didn't come with 600's)
I've narrowed it down to two choices
-General G-MAX AS-03 $121.00 per tire @ 235/45-17
-Kumho Ecsta 4X $117.00 per tire @ 235/45-17
I am soon to be purchasing a set of '05-'07 Gold BBS 17x8 5x114.3 Offset: +53 (OEM-equipped tire size: 225/45R17) for these tires.
What I want to know is what is the smallest yet reasonable size tire I can get away with? Also, I live in Chicago. We get some nasty slush. Which tire would I benefit more from?
