Get 18" rims.

That is the difference between you and me, I never go back to the carpet store.

I have the same wheels and I bought Dueler HP Sport 275/45-19 tires at Costco. They are very highly rated and work well on wet and dry roads but not cold weather.

If you want 1 set of tires for year round use in MA consider the Nokian WRG3 in 255-55-19. https://www.nokiantires.com/all-weat...kian-wrg3-suv/

Thanks everyone.

I made it home just now on the spare tire. I set cruise control to 46MPH and just put on the hazards and chilled out. This added about 1.5 hr to my drive making it ~3.5 hours total. I stopped along the way just to rest the transmission and spare tire.

I will be getting tires tomorrow and will look into the suggestions on this thread closely.

Thanks again for the help.

I've read the reviews on this tire and it sounds perfect for my driving conditions here in MA. However, I could only find them in 255-50-19, not the 255-55-19 that you mentioned. Will this work on my car? 2010 T2 w/ Terra 19" wheels.

How does the different tire size than what comes stock (275-45-19) effect the handling and electronics of the car?

https://tiresize.com/calculator/ helps you figure out tire size differences.

The Nokian website says the WRG3 are available in 255-55-19. Contact them directly to confirm availability. We have 255-55-19 nokian hakkas on terra wheels and they fit very well.

I am going to go with the continental extreme contact dws06 275/45-R19. My local big tire company has them in stock and offered me a good price installed, alignment, etc.

Thanks to everyone for helping.
