Re: Got my Winter Wheels

Those wheels/tires look great. Can't wait for pics with them on the WK2.

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

Had my new wheels and snows installed couple weeks ago from Discount Tire and we had issue with TPMS. They installed 433MHz but they didn't work! They had to go to Jeep Dealer to get New 433 MHz ones for 2011! Those work fine. Slight pain in the ass but works great now!

Good luck on ordering online...but seems TireRack.com has had no issues!

Speaking of Tire Racks got this one the other day for Summer 20" Wheels and Tires. Easy to install and good way to get them out of the way in a small garage.

Find at the http://www.thegaragedealer.com/Hylof...rage-Rack.html $159.00

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

That's a nice tire rack. When I bought a winter package for my wife's car I got some 2x4s and made my own. I'd have saved time and trouble if I'd just bought that one.

Nice vinyl floor covering too.

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

I put on the Sport Edition CX wheels and Blizzaks from tire rack today. 433 MHz Tire Pressure Sensors work great, shows pressure for all four tires on the display. These wheels are hub centric and ride very smooth, already been up to 80 mph.

Nice storage rack! That's exactly how I would store my tires. A suggestion for you though, I would rotate your tires every 30 days of storage and what I mean by rotate is rotate each tire on its axis so that you change the pressure point on the bar from the tire. I manage lots of parts for the US Navy and air craft tires are one of them....we have to rotate the tires on their axis to prevent indentations from long term storage. We do this every 30 days. Nice looking rig!
