Got them done today. GT Radial Winter Pro. Konig Crown rims. I thought they would be 55 sidewalls, but my guy went w 50's (235/50R18) to keep overall diameter close to stock. 55s would have left too little clearance. Plus he threw in TPMS at a nice discount. Total cost was $1000 and change, installed. Bye bye tax check, but hopefully no more bent rims!

Nice meats. You can't do any better than that price for a full set. Post a pic of the front caliper clearance too.

Will do tomorrow. She's in the garage for the night (unattached garage and it's 10 degrees outside).

The ride is solid. Not too "squishy" but I can tell it's a different tire. The snow performance is amazing. The roads are clear but I got to do some starts and stops in unplowed parking lots...Wow. Like having AWD. Road noise is not noticeably different...but I haven't had it on the highway yet. All in all, I'm pleased. Hit some potholes today and didn't want to immediately stop and check for bulges. Nice feeling to have.

Like having AWD.

I went shorthand and omitted the "It is" (like having AWD)....My fault. I wish the 2013s had the AWD option. But no mine does not. Sorry for the confusion.

Here is a shot of the front rim...it's tight but it fits.
