ST rims/tires

So...I stopped by my friendly natl tire chain to look at tires to replace my summer ones on my Ti. Turns out the guy who works there just bought an ST. After chatting...he indicated he hated the Goodyears on his and wished he had the Michilens on mine. I absolutely love the ST rims. It took about 10 seconds to figure out we could just trade even-steven.

The Ti 18" rims looked great on his ST...kinda like an SVT Focus. And I LOVE the ST rims on mine.

Score.

So all it cost you was a new set of tires that you were going to buy anyway?

Neat.

I think the goodyears are runflats? That would be the weight difference if so...or at least part of it. It doesn't matter...since tomorrow im putting the pirelli p-zero nero's i bought on for the cold months. (i have purchased the same pirellis twice before and was very pleased with them).

I'm thinking i'll either sell the Goodyears or use 'em for summer...not sure.

I don't believe they are run flats, but going from a W to a Y can add construction weight.
