May i ask why you went with the all season version of the continentals? You have snow tires, no need for anything but a 3 season tire.

Car looks great otherwise.
It's because our weather is insane. We have had snow at some point in each month of the year, so it's always a possibilty. In fact, this picture was taken on Saturday; ONE DAY before the pictures showing the new wheels:



There simply will be a day when snow will hit and I'll have no choice but to drive on the summer wheels, so all-seasons are better than nothing. My Grand Prix has the same pairing, winters (which are now used for storing the car) and all-seasons for summer.

Our weather hates us.

Funny you should mention that....photoshops courtesy of a friend on another forum:




If/when the Fofo gets lowered I may give it a try. For stock height though, especially since they were just painted (in one wheel's case, painted twice...), I'll keep them this colour.
