Anybody know of an inexpensive winter tire to buy? I am only keeping my 1999 GAGT 1 more winter and I don't want to spend alot of cash on a set of winter tires/wheels and my all-season tires won't cut it.

By the way, what sizes of tires will fit on the stock GT 16" wheels? On my current all-season tires I changed from the stock 225/50/16 RSA's to a 205/55/16 to save some bucks. Any other sizes fit on those wheels?

www.tirerack.com has an excellent tire size calculator. But I did some checking for you. You can use the 205/55-R16 w/o a problem and you can even downsize to 205/65-R15 if you have 15" steel rims. That is not a bad idea for winter when a slightly narrower tire will bit down better rather than ride on top. But it is your call...

For the 16" tire sizes, CLICK HERE (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Compare1.jsp?startIndex=0&vehicleSearch=true&width=205/&ratio=55&diameter=16&sortcode=44950&performance=W) to see what the tire rack has in your size and price range.
