    Hi All,

    I went to tirerack.com to shop for new winter tires and they are
    suggesting size 215/70-16 for Quest 07.
    Does anyone has experience with this alternate size?
    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Do not get the 215/70-16! These tires are designed for trucks. A tire shop several years ago recommended 235/60-16 tires.

    Why not get the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60 snow tires? They come in 225/65 – 16 size. they may be a new tire. Tire Rack has them on sale for $99 per tire. You can normally find a local dealer with similar pricing.

    In the winter, you want narrow / tall tire profile to “cut” through the snow and slush. If the tire shop knows what they are doing, this is the size they will recommend. We have an SE with 17″ OEM and after speaking with a few shops (and researching it on the Manufacturers sites), we also went with the Alternative size of 215/70-16 (also BF Goodrich Winterforce which are excellent tires BTW, especially for the money).
