Dang,,,, what a way to make friends!
But, back to the topic. I think the General Altimax is discontinued but notice the "think",,,, could be wrong.
There are definately some 205/50s that fit and work better than others. I've seen one 205 that was huge for a 205 and really wouldn't fit well. Can't remember the brand though.
If you are going in blind and are using a tire that you have seen nothing writted
:mrgreen:,,,,,, take a peak at the bead area and if that tire has a very pronounced rim protector molded in, stay away!
I'm gonna try RanyO's General Artic somethingamanothers next time. Basically a snow tire. He and others have rated them as being a good option.
BTW, I used a 205/55 to gain a bit more height in the rear. Just an option.
