Q: Advice for winter tires

asked by on

Stock tires for my car are 205 55r16 size tires. Im wondering if 205 55r17 will fit my car. My car is also 4 wheel ralliart lancer. If so, what are some of the best of the best high quality winter tires. I know that michelin x-ice xi3 tires are really good winter tires but they dont sell in my car size. I need some recommendations. Also, if i just got two winter tires and put one in the front and one in the back, would it larger prevent my car from slipping. I know that it wont be as good as 4 good tires but im wondering if that idea of one tires in the back and front are winter tires, would it be healthy for my car or if i intend to get only two tires, should i just put the two in the back or the front, which would be best. I'm just trying to prevent slipping in the snow as much as possible.

My car has 132000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
