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??

Just had my 18" rims and tires from Tirerack.com installed on my 2LT RS this weekend at my dealership. Ordered the rims and tires on Tuesday morning, they arrived mounted and balanced on Thursday morning.

No problem using 18" on a 2LT RS.

I have a 2LT RS, and I put on 18's for winters. See above pics. There's no reason why you can't put on 18's. the dealer is jsut trying to make a quick buck off ya. Alot of people on here have 18" winters on..and quite a few have bought theirs from tirerack.com (Like myself).

Hope that helps.

I didn't order mine with the TPMS...originally I thought mine accidentally came with them because no lights came on. But now just the tpms light comes on in the dash. Will just have to live with that till spring time. Other than that, no problems at all!

Lucky! I wish i could drive a Camaro in the winter!

I made the mistake of not driving my Cobalt SS in the winter for the 3 years i had it. Eh, only a little bit of regret.

I've recently decided to drive my car in the winter.
Where can I go to find good/cheap rims? I'll be going with the Firestone Winterforce tires as well.

I was told by some of my local car gurus that I wouldn't need to change the rims, and just washing them frequently in the winter will stop the rims from suffering any damge from salt and such. True or not?

Are you planning on mounting winter rubber on your summer (stock) rims..and then come spring..re-mounting the summer rubber back on? If so...constantly removing and the re-placing rubber on rims is bad for the rims. It's jsut extra wear and tear on the rims and over time, the rims could possibly warp from the extra wear and tear. Plus if you get a winter set of rims..you can change your tires your self without having to re-mount and re-balance every change of season. If you spend a few extra bucks now...you'll thank yourself later...just my opinion..
