Glad awe are back online! so I am looking at winter tires and wheels. A few in my local chapter have suggested going with 16" wheels and tires for the winter. My car currently has 17" wheels. Trying to choose between Bridgestone WS 80' and Michelin X- Ice X13. Is going to a 16" something I should consider or is staying with the 17"the way to go? How much of a difference will the 16" be? Not looking for the handling I currently have with my Conti's. Want the best from a winter tire.
