I am having a very hard time finding some replacement winter tires (P225/70R14) for a 1996 Mazda B3000 4x2 Cab Plus (essentially the same as the Ford Ranger Supercab). Currently, I have all season Firestones with limited tread depth. Since I had just recently purchased this used truck with 61,000 km, these Firestones seem to be the original tires.

I need replacement winter tires that are very good in wet and wet snow conditions. Also, they should be fair to good in icy conditions (occassion trips to a heavy snow region).

Also, would having two A/S and two winter tires be okay for my situation?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Also, would you recommend four A/T tires for the above vehicle and conditions encountered? Please state your reasons why. Thanks.

That is quite an odd size for a tire. I've seen that size listed but I've never personally seen a store have one. I'm not familiar with tire brands and such, but you may want to consider looking at the 215/75R14 size. It's the same height, just a centimeter thinner. That, too, is a rare size but there are old Ford LTDs like mine that still need tires.

If you consider switching to a 60 series profile, I'm certain you have few options. BFG makes their Radial T/A in that size, Sumitomo also makes a tire called the HTR4 in this 225 60HR14 size. Good luck!

Tirerack has the Bridgestone Winter Duekler in stock in the size you requested.

I have the same tires on my '95 Ranger. I'm considering the Michelin XC LT4 in the same size. It is sold by Sears and NTB.
