Check it out: http://www.tirerack.com/tire-12/Good...l+Season.shtml

I like it, I'm considering it in 225/50R16

Any thoughts from others?

Stick with the 205/55-16 size. They'll work better in the snow and give you less squirm in the sidewall.

It looks like a tire. The tread design is probably just a crapshoot, though, so looks aren't everything.

The tread difference for that tire is 0.01 of an inch when you look at the specs. 225/50-16 is pretty much no wider than 205/55-16

I shouldn't have linked just that post, or I should have thrown a smiley in there, as I intended it as a joke. If you read the whole thread you'll see that I couldn't disagree more.
