Winter Tires Put On (Pics Included)

So I decided to put my Winter Tires on today (I know...you are all going to hate me for driving this car in the winter) Anyway, here are some pics...they are not the greatest..but I think the tires look ok for just winter use.

I got the rims and rubber from tirerack

No hate here. I got my Pirelli Snow and Ice winters from Tirerack.com. Awesome customer support by the way. I'm getting them mounted and balanced here in the next couple of weeks. How do you like those rims? I'm looking for summer rims.

When I ordered mine from them, I got them to mount the rubber on the rims and balance the tires. They came rims on rubber...so all I had to do was put them on my car . I dont mind the rims...they are just for winter use..so they'll do. They look alot better than steelies. I'm debating now whether to get the stocks summers powder coated black over the winter..hmm...

With rims like that, who'll even notice the winter tires. They actually look too nice for winter, but enjoy, and be careful.

Those rims look great! Making me second guess my "Heritage" steelies from the LS... I've got mine on but need to get the center caps and black hardware, they look ridiculous the way they are now!

Hey, I wrote in the other thread..but NO...I didn't order them...BUT I think Tirerack installed them. I changed the wheels..and the in DIC I told it to relearn the wheels and apparently it did. No warning lights, no messages, not anything. When I check the DIC, it gives me pressure readings...so maybe I lucked out?????

Nice Hope I get some of that luck when I order.

I think I'm going to go with the 225/60/18 Firestone Winterforce as well with this 18" rim:

I had those rims on my wish list too! Looks good on the Black Camaro! What size tires did you buy? I went with 225/60R18.

I went with the same size as well in the Firestones. Best bang for buck. IMO.

trying to get some winter tires (in nova scotia) every chev dealership says I can't go with 18" tires and rims that I must go with 20"s I have a 2lt rs. front tires are different size than back. They also say I can't put same size winter tires all around they must be different in front and back. Any feedback??
