Winter wheel sugestions
 
Looking at winter wheels, needed them about a month ago. Right now, im stuck on two different ones.

Or

Which is better?

I like the top ones; but they look a LOT like the Ti Handling rims. If you want it to look kind of stock, I'd go with those. It also depends on the color of your car for those red ones... they'd probably look good with black or the red candy.

First ones, definitely.

for winter i always think steel w/o hubcaps looks awesome. Nothing like seeing a car plow through snow with those badboys on there.

saves some dough too.

The price is about the same, in the case of the red wheels, the steelies cost more.

What are your summer wheels???

If anyone is looking for OEM steel wheels with winter tires, I put mine up in the "for sale" section. Less than 5,000 miles on them.

What sizes are both wheels? For the best winter traction, you want the narrowest wheel with the lowest profile.

16x7 will have a 215/55/16 on them.

Go with the first ones then IMO. I'm just not a fan of colored wheels other than black and white.
