I need 175/65 R15 size tires. I have 15" wheels. I live in New Mexico. I want all-weather tires, a good standard all-purpose tire that will last for a while. I do not take this car off-road, nor do I drive it hard. In other words, I am less concerned about being able to take sharp corners at 60 and more concerned with not sliding off the road if it snows.

Problem is, not a lot of tires are available in your size (15"). I see most of the tires and the OEM tires are not so good in the snow, like the continentals. Only ones that I could recommend. are the General Altima RT43, H rated or the Yokohama Avid Envigor

Go for the 17" wheels and tires, lifts you up a bit, gives more clearance and more bite with the wider width rubber. I love Toyo tires I had them on my Mini. Great traction, spend a little more for good rims and tires, much safer in the snow.
