Call Steelcase Tire. They'll answer all your questions. They sell every winter tire imaginable for cheap. Talk to Joe, the owner.

Anything 14". OEM bottlcaps are damn near free and the right offset, get those.

185/70/14 or 195/65/14 tires.

I believe they are the stock size 195/60 R14.
They're in my storage locker so let me know if you're serious so that I can go look.

IIRC more than ~60% treadlife left (short winters).
