Winter Tires

As sad as it is cold weather made me break out the winter tires. Bought some replica wheels off e-bay and installed Hankook Ipike 265/50/R20 tires. Must say that the ride is alot smoother compared to run flats but tires make a slight whining sound. Handling seems to be better in cold weather now to wait for some snow. Ugh!!

Re: Winter Tires

Here are pics of complete vehicle. These wheels seem to have more of a chrome finish than factory originals. Only problem I had was that the factory wheel nuts did not fit and I had to buy smaller ones to fit. Not sure of offset but they were listed on e-bay and came from Dominican Republic and only took about 10 days to arrive. I can forward a link to the seller if anyone wants it.
