I am also looking for a set of winter rims/tires but I am having a difficult time finding a set.
Was thinking about a 17" inch rim and tire combo but was told it will be about 3-4 Km difference on the speedo/odometer.
Was thinking about some 20" wheels but those tires are expensive!
Was also told just to run my current rim/tire combo but I don't want to ruin the chrome cladded rims.
But was told they are very durable and it won't be a problem running them in the snow/salt/slush/sh*t, but not sure I want to take the chance?
