    Default Vectra C sedan Z22YH - winter tyres

    Gents,

    I have 215/55/R16 summer tyres on my veccy. What is the better way to go with the winter tyres?
    Should I keep the size 215/55/R16 or should I go for 205/55/R16? I mean, its not about money, its more about safety, handling of the car etc. Also I would like to know your opinion if steels wheels should be used, or I can still use my alloys.

    thanx

    I have 205/55/16 winter tyres on steel wheels. Used them for a week last year as direct swap for the 215/55/16 alloys

    Does this "rule" apply on snow and on ice?
