    The only kind of tire I need here is a good rain tire and I'm set. No worries about snow; if on that rare occasion that we do get snow, the Elio will be in a nice weather controlled garage, and I'll take the 4X4 Dodge Nitro. :becky:

    Or better yet, I'll just stay home :thumb:

    Hear, hear! When the Miata was my daily driver, it would have been undriveable in the snow if not for the Blizzaks.

    Just a technicality: The problem is not that nobody manufactures that particular size of tire. The problem is that it is not currently distributed within the United States. Probably because it isn't popular here.

    You can bet that as soon as the Elio gains traction in the market (:drum:), you will be able to buy Michelin or Toyo tires for your Elio at your local tire center of choice.

    For sure you would be able to find them at Pep Boys.
