I drove a F-150 for the past few years so I didn't bother getting winter wheels but with moving back home to Ohio down in them hills, the SES 17's won't do to well with the roads...

So i was looking for a winter setup for my '10 and on Tire Rack there are
195/60R15 Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 I have heard these are pretty boss. Are they?


Secondly they also have some steelies, over all the package for wheels and tires would be $564.00 would it be worth it or should I find a junked Focus and see if it has steel wheels?


One last thing do I have to get the TPMS?


Over all with the wheels, rims, and sensors it'll be $848.35 is that a good deal?

and yes you can make fun of me.[duh]

No one will be making fun of you on here! You're asking good questions :)

I'll voice in on the TPMS question. You don't have to get TPMS sensors but be aware that a warning light will stay illuminated on the dashboard and there is usually a chime when you start the car. There is no harm to the vehicle if you don't get the sensors and it has no bearing on the traction control or ABS.

Well, if no one else will, then I'll make fun of you. j/k. Your questions aren't that bad.

I can't tell you how good the Blizzaks are but I have heard all good about them. That said, I run Winterforce tires on my car and they work great for a much lower cost (at least I think they are cheaper). Furthermore, if you aren't worried about the TPMS, then run to a salvage yard and see if you can grab any rims from there. I can get them from my local yard for $25 a rim, and if your lucky, you can get alloys.
