My winter setup

I know it's early but last year I got caught with winter tires and no wheels to go with them.

It turned out to be more difficult than I thought to find some inexpensive wheels that fit.

So that's why I picked these up so early.

Tires:
Michelin X-Ice 235/45 - 17

Wheels:
MB Wheels - Weapon - Gunmetal finish 17x8 28offset

That should work great. Cheap rims that don't look bad, and tires that will eat up the ice/snow, although the dry road action will suck like with my Blizzaks.

I basically have the same setup with my 17x8 charcoal Rota Torques and 235/45-17 Blizzaks.

Ya I had these tires on my stock rims last winter and they were awesome. I bought them just before my board trip to Keystone. I never felt more secure on the mountain roads.

I was close to buying the Blizzaks, seems like everyone uses them. The X-Ice were just a little cheaper so I thought I would give them a try.

I wish, or anywhere in CO for that matter, but no I live in Kansas City.


I would think that the Blizzaks would be easy to find. Made by Bridgestone.

You can find them on tirerack and other tire supplier websites.

Yeah, it should be pretty easy to find Bridgestone Blizzaks - very common tire.

I happened to get mine used for $100 total. They were worn, but I didn't need them except for a few months at a time.

My guess would be mid in the mid-18s. My nearly-identical 17X8 Rota Torques are 18.xx #s.
