    Questions re: tire age and winter tire sizes?

    My iX has two old (03 build dates) all-season with aggressive tread pattern (5K miles) Conti's (205/55/15) on the rear and two relatively new (3K) all-season Kumhos (205/55/14) 4X II on the front. I'm trying to decide if I should purchase Kumhos to replace the Conti's. Or, purchase 4 winter tires....but the only available size for OEM wheels is 195/60/15, I live in IL and drive < 1000 miles/winter because a Focus RS is my DD. FYI- I have dedicated summer tires on second set of refurbished IX alloys.

    Thanks!

    Mismatched tires on an iX = fried transfer case viscous coupling. Get four new tires and you will thank yourself. Couplings are NLA so good matched tires are cheap insurance.
