studded snow tires

Just got a 2012 fit sport. Tire size 185/55 R16 83H. Does anyone know if I can use
Cooper Weather-master S/T2


185/65 R15 88T studdable, BSW



I wasn't sure if the 88T would be a problem. Anyone ever use studdable snows on their FIT?

Studdable tires on the fit? Yes you can run them as they are just regular snow tires with the pre-drilled holes for studs if desired. My General Altimax Arctic Tires are studdable and the Hankook & Winterforce tires I've used in the past (on other cars) have all been studdable. In NC, you definitely don't need to have the Studs installed and I've never used them here in VT. Those would probably be more than competent in your area. Here I use 185/65/15 on alloys from an integra to raise the car up a tiny bit but with a 2012, you'll want to use the factory wheels to maintain TPMS.

Any particular reason you are looking at snow tires? The stock all seasons should be plenty for your needs in NC.

I've just always counted on studded snows for ice and slick conditions. I used them upstate NY and here in the mountains it's the extra security I like since they are not as responsive to clear the roads.

I appreciate the feedback. I have to get rid of my studded snow tires from my old car. P185/60R15 are no good to me now. Many people here think I'm too cautious, so I may have to wait till some friends from up north visit.

Normally I purchase snows with studs on rims so it is easy to switch back and forth. Can I do that with the 2012 Fit?
