Good bye snows!

I couldn't take it anymore, I took my snow tires off and went back to my gunmetal 17ís. The snows were nice this past winter, but I am happy to have the dry traction back now that the weather is supposed to be a little warmer! Plus he looks SO much better!

Dude, I'm running all season on my 18 TI wheels, and all I could do all winter was hop them when I floored it. This weather is glorious right now.

A lot like taking boots off and putting on a nice pair of running shoes isn't it? Let's hope it stays this way for a while. I bet Boston is going to have one heck of a St. Patty's day party this year!

For those who have the black pack package, did you buy another set of rims for your winter tires? I'm thinking of purchasing just the winter tires and put them on my black rims. Getting the car tomorrow and it will be delivered with the 4 season tires.

Good idea or not?

Well, I have the Ti Handling Package (18" Wheels) but I put my winter tires (195/65R15) on a set of steel rims.

I was considering putting my 18"s back on this weekend, but it might snow again . I also want to wait until Wisconsin starts filling the potholes first; the roads are horrible.

you can get a second set of stock wheels pretty cheap on craigslist or ebay. also search on here for Volvo - our cars take a 5x108 bolt pattern that's very common on volvos - i've got my winter tires on a set of Volvo rims i bought on ebay for around $200.
