It has 17" wheels. I'd like to get something with better-than-shitty winter traction, but not so good as to sacrifice summer traction. I do live in Virginia, so I only have to deal with snow a few times a year and usually for a day or less. I'd like to stick with Euro tires, but I'll go Asian if there is no better option. I'd rather avoid American tires, as I've not had good luck with them in the past.
