Winter Wheels Package Opinions

I live in Boston and we are expected to get 7 inches of snow this weekend so I just had these 18's put on. Matte Black with Gloss Black accents with Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow. What do you guys think?

Definitely the best 18inch wheel I have seen on a Camaro. Good job!

Ive been dreading this but ive come to a conclusion.....as ugly as my winter set up is gonna look on my car, it will be much prettier than the damage that could be created from loosing control on the snow and ice! Buddy of mine just took out his front bumper cover and damaged a fender when he lost control on his summer tires

I used to have a 350z and my first year owning it I ran it with summer tires through the winter....quite the experience.


Tire Size is 235/60R18

Drove from Boston to New York and then back today after getting around 6 inches of snow mixed with some rain. Roads were pretty harsh in the morning. I do not have anything to compare them to besides the all season continental contact dws I had on my 350z. Must say these were MUCH better and im sure the extra weight helped. There were large puddles all over the highway this morning mixed with slush and the Scorpions handled very well and I noticed a major difference with hydroplaning. I can not recommend the Scorpions over Blizzaks (because I have never tried them), but I will vouch for these.
