In case anyone wants to know a good combination of snows for a 300m:
Front: Cooper Discoverer M+S 215/70 R 16
Rear: Bridgestone Blizzak WS-50 205/70 R 15
This will be the third or fourth season for that combination. The front
shock tower guard clears the Cooper's by about 1/4 inch. The Coopers
are technically an SUV/light-truck tire.
Yea, they put the speedo off by a little, but they've also pulled me
down some roads where the snow was so deep it was scraping the bottom of
the car (and I took my front air-dam off a few years ago).
Still running on the original battery. 10 years 1.5 months old and
No snow on the ground around here yet. Been really lucky that the
lake-effect snow has totally missed us.
