Hmm, let me ask for your opinions. I live in NJ, where it snows occasionally, nothing drastic, rarely. Shall I get snow or all-year tires? The reason I'm asking is don't snow tires dimish quicker if there is no snow on the ground? So wouldn't it make more sense to get all-year tires. I know this question has been beaten to death so go easy on me.
not doomed, but keep your trac control on and go easy on the throttle in the wet... i was driving with the ECT POWER ON and the TRAC CONTROL off and ended up spinning the car about 270degrees when it started to rain and i turn full lock and floored the gas... (my previous car was a FWD and i never had spin out problems... chaulk it up to inexperience...)Originally posted by Agent Smith:
What about us NorCal people...does anyone up here have All Seasons or did they stick with the Bridgestone/Goodyear stock 17"? Am I doomed in this thing if it rains?
I was curious where you were going to get this combo...because it is EXACTLY what I am looking for. Do you get it online??Originally posted by mellowyello:
We decided on the Blizzak MZ-01 (205/55/16)with 16" Konig Reign wheels.

Thanks Rob...Its getting colder and colder every day here in Pa and I have to get prepared!!Originally posted by MNSpectraBlueIS:
I'm not the exact person you were asking, but I have some info for you. I went with the Konig Reign and Michelin Pilot Alpin tires from Discount Tire Direct (www.discounttiredirect.com). They were very competitive with price. I don't think they have Blizzaks though. If you're set on the Konig Reign wheels and the Blizzaks you'll have to order them separately (get the tires from TireRack), because the Reign wheel is a special model that ONLY Discount Tire Direct sells.

nutinbut - Rob is right on, we got the tires from TireRack.com and the wheels from DiscountTire.com. The combo ran us 891.13 (including shipping).
Mello.....those wheels make you car look INCREDIBLE, I see now why you are holding out as long as you can!!
