Don't drive that car in the snow, it'll suck. Either don't drive it or buy some narrow 16" rims and snow tires from tirerack.com. Then you can easily swap from summer to snow tires every winter and spare your rims. Alloy rims won't rust, but they may lose their finish a little after a few years.

I wouldnt want to drive this car but i have to. There is no other car for me to drive. The lexus dealer said they would put together a package of 16" niche's and snow tires for $1,000. Should I take those, even though the rims are very ugly??

i wouldn't you could probably get them cheaper some where else. 1,000 sounds a litle to pricey.

600-800 for tires sounds a bit more correct if not on the steep side. i dont' know how much the snow tires cost but i know that Michelin Pilot Sports will cost me at most 250 brand new and they have some of the best performance tires around. keep shopping and i'm sure you'll find a great deal. you can also use tirerack.com
