After reading as much as possible here and elsewhere, I had all but decided on the Bridgestone Revos for my Olds Intrigue. I was upset to find out they don't come in a 225/60R16! I don't want to replace my wheels, so the closest size seems to be the 235/60R16. I calculate that this would make my speedometer read less than 98% of the correct reading. Is this a fair trade off, or would I get better handling with the Bridgesone RE930 or 910s. Note, I'd like a moderately good handling tire with good wet traction and decent snow performance. It should also be quiet. I was also considering the Micheline Energy MXV4+.

Thanks. -John

Well...wait, I check the size for you but it seems REVO do comes with your size 225/60/16 BUT it's Z rated with 240 treadwear. I would concern Energy MXV4+ would only provide OK snow traction. You can check the Tire Rack for the customer survey result(but do not buy the whole story, just as reference) Also, I would think the Micheline Pilot XGT series would provied more snow traction.

If you can give up ride try the Firestone Firehawk PV41 or Goodyear RSA. Great handling wet and dry, 'V' speed rating, decent snow. Ride is somewhat down though..
