Default need help finding winter tires

hey everyone i am going to be getting new tires for winter. I really want to get a tire in size 185/70/16 but well settle for a 195/65/16. I have been looking everywhere on the internet and cant find any tire in those two sizes. Does anyone know where i can find a winter tire in either one of these sizes or a brand.

Appreciate any help.

thanks Keith

Check on tirerack.com. Search for tires by size, it's much easier that way. I dont think your gonna find those sizes in a 16'' wheel. Hope this helps. BTW Luke is a moderator on nasioc. He is the tirerack god.

oh ok thanks by the way i already went to tirerack.com they didn't have either tire sizes it made me wonder if they even make tires in that size for a 16 inch wheel. I guess you would have to have a 15 inch wheel. Thanks for the help though.

For the most part if you can't find any info on a tire size no one makes a tire in that size.

Why so tall & narrow? You run through unplowed snow that often?

Nokian Hakka R comes in 195/60R16 (25.2" dia) or 205/60R16 if you really want a 26" tire.


EDIT: Nokian does make truck tires in 195/65R16

As has been said, Luke is a moderator on this forum, and he knows Subarus really well. Plus he works for TireRack, so he has all the scoop on tire availability, sizing, and can offer recommendations for nearly any situation. He is my "go to guy" for advice and has never steered me wrong.
