Re: Got my Winter Wheels

As promised, here are some photos. It was a nice bright brisk day, -3 C, and had no problems mounting them. I think they look great and the offset looks good.

#1 Did the rear first:


#2 Now the front:


#3 TPMS with metal valve stems:


#4 After around the block test:


#5 Offset looks good:


Ready for the winter and snow now.....

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

They look better than the stock! I wonder if I can order the same metal valve stems for the stock wheels (I need them for the extra sensors I have to screw on to the valve stems when I tow the jeep behind the motorhome).

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

the stock valve stems arent metal? I thought all TPMS stems were metal

Those are very nice looking....I thought about them too.

Sensors alone can be ordered from Tire Rack. The kit will come with sensor and valve stem.

The stock stems are black rubber. You now have a choice of stems for tpms sensors from Tire Rack, silver or black metal.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL ......

Looks great Angel.
The weather here in southern Ontario has been quite mild so I still can't comment on the tires. I know they will be better from prior experience though.

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

Just an update on the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1. I were now able to test them under hard winter conditions. They are amazing. This combination (WK2 and Blizzak's) is without any doubts a strong recommendation.

'Red G8R' what about you ...were you able to test your wheels? Can you confirm?

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

So far I'm very pleased. It's been bitterly cold here with minimal snow but traction has not been a problem at all.
Glad you're happy with yours.
