That's odd, but maybe that's because the Ti comes standard with 17" wheels and they might not by default minus size 2 their winter packages despite the standard brakes being the same with the 18"s as they are with the 15"s in terms of the front disks at least.

Of course they were being a pain when I went to look for shipping quotes on either 15 or 16" wheels/sensors/ tires and then they tried to tell me they were oos from the nearest depot and any of the close depots but Utah or Nevada or something had them for $240+ just in shipping. But if you go with a more expensive tire they might still have had them locally.

Not sure I can afford them at this time anyway so we'll see how these continentals do in the snow first, then if I don't like them I might try and do something later.

When I went for the winter package options even specifying the Titanium model it gave me the 15" winter package as the preferred option. So that's odd that it won't show you this otherwise?
