I have 3 sets of wheels, a 5 spoke set i got from tire rack with some dunlop "summer" tires and then i have a set of 5 spoke centerlines with a set of racing tires on the front and some cheap toyo all season on the back.

I want to get a new set of tires for the centerlines so i have 2 sets of summer tires i can switch back and forth to.

THEN i have some blizzak snow tires on some stock wheels but im going to paint them black here in a few days.

This is what im running right now, they have about 6k on them. then the centerlines

And this is how im planning to paint the stock wheels that have the snow tires on them. I think these have about 5k on them also. They are really tall i think 205/60/15 and the tread is DEEP. Im just going to hand paint black between the spokes with brush on caliper paint.

I have a set of dunlop all seasons I used year round for last winter but they are UHP all-season tires and werent espcially good in the snow.

I have an old set of 15" wheels that I'd like to get some snow tires for this season.
