My neighbor's daughter just started college and we did a pre-trip inspection on her vehicle before she left to make sure it could handle the voyage. She has a 1995 Neon sedan with 13" wheels. She will mainly be using it for short trips and errands while away at school. The poor car needs new tires and their family just won't listen to me about having separate sets for winter and summer (we live in MA and she is attending school in slightly-snowier NH; I've always been a believer in having a set for each season), so they will be shopping for all-seasons. The young lady does not have much money but I said I'd help her pick out a tire for her vehicle. Anyone have any recommendations for an affordable all-season tire for that tiny little car? I know my brother, a NC resident, runs Bridgestone Potenzas on one of his cars, and unknown model Michelins on his other, and he has very little trouble driving in the snow when he comes up to visit us and reports good dry- and wet-surface performance down south. I had Continental Touring 2000s on my 99 Monte Carlo for one winter and they weren't bad, but I can no longer find that model.
