Don't bother with 16's get 195/60/15's, the size that comes on the standard 9-3, narrower tires are BETTER in the snow then wide and you'll save money as well. I had some old Givslavd's on a car once, and I have NEVER been so impressed by traction in the snow....I though all snow tires were like that, then I bought some BF Goodrich winter radials, and they were usless compared to the Givslavd's. The old ones were a bit noisey, but simply STUNNING traction.
