Winter tires on the way!

Just closed a deal on some used 16" Mille Miglia A1's with Dunlop Winter Sport M2's.  :D  Now hopefully UPS will deliver them before Winter delivers our first snow.

Nice. Those wheels look like the votex tocatta which I always liked. I think I'm going the Jay route and doing all-seasons for my 15" alloys.

Shum consider the Nokian Wr's as your all season tires.  Not a bad price in 15's.  Meadow Creek in denver sells. them.

I just spent some cash yesteday too.  Thanks to my two trips to LA in the month I had to get new summer rubber and new winter rubber.

I am now running Kumho Ecsta Supra 712 - 235/45ZR17 in the summer and Bizzak 205/60R15 in the winter.

So bring on the snow!

I actually got them off ebay.  I didn't want to wait the 6 days for the auction to end though so I asked the seller if he would end the auction early with me as high bidder.  He agreed and I paid extra in shipping to make the cost of the wheels & tires $400.  A pretty damn good deal as long as they're in the shape he says.  8)

They're heeeeerrrrre!  Now, if any of you have some spare OEM lug bolts sitting around you want to sell me, let me know.



Once I clean and wax them a little and get some spherical lug bolts, I'll be good to go for winter.
