Winter Rims = OEM Full Size Rim

With 18" 5-spoke rims and Michelin Summer-Use tires, I felt that I had no choice but to order steel rims. Put fullsize 16" spare (standard with 18" Rims/Performance Pkg). on counter at local Ford Dealer and told them to match identical rim and 4 TPMS's. After all, why have 3 different rim sizes? Brother in law is tire dealer and put Michelin X-Ice Xi2 which had $70.00 rebate, here in Canada.
Trouble is: lowest snowfall in recent memory but rain traction is excellent!
