You're right. For crashing into tire walls, what you have will work just fine.

If i could get RSRs in a 9" wide appropriate size, i would run them over RS3s. Because they'd cost about $200 less.

I can't fathom the situation where you'd run NeoGens in 205/50 on a 15x8 over RSRs in the same size.

RSRs are fine in rain. Neogens suck in pretty much... everything.

<p>What about the cold? Wouldn't they freeze and become shitty because they are summer tires?</p><p>There are quite a few people running 205 RSRs on 15x9s.</p>

<p>Also, how long do they last compared to an RS3. If they last half the mileage then its fine if RS3s cost 200 more.</p>

Should easily get half the mileage. Or more. Remember, TW ratings are subjective and rated by the manufacturer, not 3rd party.

Who cares if they freeze and get shitty? They're cheap. Neogens aren't exactly winter tires either.

<p>Because I can run the neogens all winter multiple winters and not care if they freeze. Then put the RSRs on and not get new tires every year.</p>

If you want winter tires, then buy winter tires. Buying a tire for winter based on their summer performance is one of the dumbest things i've heard in recent history.

I think our definitions of winter are very different.

He's never going to need blizzaks or the like, so a decent performing all-season should be fine.
