Default Best place to buy Kumho KW19 snows in 17"?

looking for 17" snow tires, as appearantly no 16" wheel will fit over the brembo STi brakes. Have Toyo Garit-HT's on my WRX and love them, but i think the tread pattern would be even better on the Kuhmo KW19's. plus they're studdable.

Looking for under $140 a tire so far...

Looked around on the web and could find only 1010tires.com that sold the tire ($164 for a 225/45x17 or $147 for the 215/50x17)(not available in the 205/50x17 which would be the equivalent size). There may be more sellers out there. You don't say what you're looking for in a snow tire, but I think you could do just as well for allot less money (and remember narrower is better). I'm running Viking Snowtechs (Continental), although in the 205/55x16 size, and I've been very impressed with them. It's not the most aggressive snow tire out there, but I've found that with all wheel drive you really don't need that unless you do allot of driving in deep snow. They're also available in the correct 205/50x17 size and as a bonus, they're H rated. $88 each at tiresavings.com. This is just an example; there are a number of good dedicated snow tires out there for reasonable money.
