    Please tell me you're putting the snow tires on the stock wheels and you're old rubber on the Rotas.

    Please.

    :werd:

    having owned a 240 for 1 winter, i will tell you this right now.... stay home.

    i had studdded snows in the back, and i got stuck on level ground. that car fucking blows goats in the snow.

    225 is the stock size--- jsut like 185 is the stock civic size. i CANT fit anything less than an 8" wide wheel in +48 around the 4-piston brembo's. putting a 205 on an 8" wide wheel would stretch it a lot... and a tight tire in the snow is no good. i did a LOT of research before i bought these, and this is the best solution.

    I ahd 185's on my hatch too. and yes, thinner = less plowing and more cut... but don't forget, i also wiegh 1000 lbs more than a civic at 3200 lbs... so i push harder down gravity wise.


    nope.

    rota's are trash. which is why i bought them for winter wheels :)

    these wheels cost my 600 bucks. the STOCK BBS wheels in USED condition on most boards are selling for 900 bucks with no tires.

    i want an extra set so i can just swap the day it storms... i dont want to be the idiot in line while its snowing at the tire store. lol

    :werd:

    http://www.subydude.com

    they sell all kinds of sizes.

    i dont have any rims and tires. i have a set of civic snows hat are pendng to chip... other than that, all my honda parts/wheels/tres are gone.

    about 20 lbs... 19 and change. about the same as the stock bbs's weight. these are also 17x8. big wheels. 15x6.5's will obviosuly be much lighter.

    lol put some snow tires on your $500 volks and shut up :p

    you better not [​IMG]

    he made that comment cuz i sold him my volks for next to nothing cuz he bought my del sol too.... just messing around.

    they really weren't that expensive... i broke a little over 1100 bucks.

    bigger = more expensive.. tires were like 165 each i think... but they having banging reviews.... and i'm moving on to a big-ass hill, so i need something good.

    plus, these should last me two seasons i'm guessing.... and if i don't screw a wheel, i got summer wheels for some R-comps :p

    you get them from tirerack? whats normal road driving like? (or projected to be like) thats whats holding me back from getting snow tires. i mean yea they are great in the snow, but youw only be driving in it like a few times and then its back to dry road.

    Nice wheels dude, i like em a lot... i wish i had $1,100 to spend on 'my shitty wheels'.

    And yea, i'm moving next month or this month to michigan for awhile.. i can't wait to park my civic into everything when i get to the snow.
    Phoenix drivers != Snow drivers.
    I drive good, but I'm going to safely assume i don't know what i'm in for when it comes to snow...
    Hell, half of phoenix parks their cars into each other when it blows dust and rains for 4 minutes.
