My winter set arrived on Saturday. Here’s a few pics. I’m really happy with how they look. There’s SO MUCH tread on these Ultra Grips. Almost reminds me of a truck tire lol. The ride is better over bumps, but not as direct, as expected with 55 series tires. Before everyone asks, they’re 225/55/17 in size.

I like your wheels. I think they would look better without the extra five holes between the lugs, but still an improvement over the factory wheels.

ENKEI J10 17" with Blizzak WS90 215/60r17 - feels good man, esp. with 2 "snow events" coming in the next week.
Do you mind me asking how (or where) did you find the ENKEIs with 5x115? I don't think I've found any here in Canada..

The black wheels look nice. I am getting my winter set on Thursday. I purchased all black wheels for the winter tires, but debating if I should use the factory wheels instead, and use the black for the rest of the year.
I faced the same question. Ended up using the Velox Aftermarket wheels as my winter wheels and I'm still not sure it was the right decision.

Thank you! I really like darker wheels on the car, especially with it being white. If they were 17's I would likely do the same. After I burn up the 30k miles or so left on the Conti's, I might buy some dark summer wheels and tires. I contemplated using the stocks as winter wheels, but didn't want a thin sidewall, being 18's.
