Winter Rims/Tires ???
Thinking I might need winter tires on the ST. Any comments on what you are running?

Better yet....anyone selling 17" Rims near Southeast Michigan?

Thanks Tom

17 x 7.5" Sport Edition wheels and 215/45R/17 General Altimax Arctic snows.

Same diameter as the stock 235/40R/17s (25.4 in) so they shouldn't throw the speedo reading off.

I got the rims for about $95/ea through a local tire dealer, who ordered them through the Tire Rack, got the General snows at a very reasonable price from the same source.

BTW: That's a front hub/wheel in the photo.

Moved to "Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension - Sponsored By Tire Rack"

Take a peek in this section of the forum. There are lots of discussions about winter tires.

Thank you for the reply. That exactly what I'm looking for. I wonder what kind of deal I can get on a set. The stock tire are already terrible in the cold I can only imagine them in the snow!

I suggest you contact Julian our Tirerack representative ( for no obligation advise. The "rack" did some "on the car" ST tire and wheel fitments not that long ago. If I remember correctly, there's some 16" wheels that will fit the ST. This will save you some money in the long run (both 16" tires and wheels tend to be cheaper) and you'll be able to use a slightly narrower tire which is generally preferable.
