So the current tires (continental contitouring) on my '95 stang are quickly coming to the end of their life and I've been trying to decide on a decent set of all season tires to throw on to replace them. I'd like something that can handle wet weather and maybe even a little snow/ice (if possibe...)

The stock tire is quoted at 225/55/16 but I found out that I can up it to 245/50/16 on the same rims (any idea what this might do to my milage tho?). I've had some issues in the past with traction so I figure a little bit more rubber on the road might help to negate this issue.

So basically the bottom line is my budget is about $350 (yea I know, kinda low...) for a set of 4 (not including having them mounted) and really the only ones that I can get for this price are:

Primewell Pz900's from [email protected]$60 each (anyone ever tried these?)

dude ive benn burning tires off since i was 15 now im 25 you do the math .you get what you pay for with tires.may i recomend replacing the tires in pairs? replace the worse two first preferably the front and change the back when you get the funds .also you dont have to have the same size tires in the front as the back unless your doing some serious corner carving dont go so wide up front .this is just an hones opinion
