strange snow tire size, need help!

lads, two of my snow tires are worn, I need decent price, means no $600/set snow tires, I call up some places but they want $$$$ for those size, I'm going to Cheap thrills to check it out, but just want to know if any of you can help me out.

I need 225/50/16 snow tires. Don't tell me get 195/60 or something, there's no way in hell 195 can even drive fine, and I dont' like driving with traction control on.

the Volvo is a garage queen, she doesn't see snow, rarely rain, and lots of track time.

tires

My 98 328i comes stock with 225/50/16's. Fow winter, I run a little narrower and a little taller. 215/55/16's. It's rolling diameter is a little larger than stock. You're right, it is not a common size.
