I do have a few picks. They look great in person. Should get me though the snow no problem.

Your truck looks great Radak.

Any idea how much of a difference your combo made with your speedo?

I have been looking for a while now but having no luck, and just thinking about it, nobody has mentioned anything about 18" rims, just 17's and 20's

Radak04 will become famous soon enough


Speedo is the same with that tire size.

Use this calculator to determine how tire sizes affect your speedo and how they compare to stock.

Put the steel winter rims and snow tires on yesterday. For the first 10 or so km, it simply displayed the last "good data" from the TPMS sensors in the alloy rims I had taken off.
Then there was a single chime and a message appeared in the EVIC display saying "service tire pressure system" for a few seconds, then the yellow tire pressure symbol started blinking. It did that for maybe 10 minutes, then went to a steady light, not blinking.

An envelope symbol appeared next to the ECO message at the top of the EVIC display, indicating there was a message waiting. When I checked it, the "service tire pressure system" message was there.

The next time I drove the truck, the orange tire pressure warning symbol was no longer illuminated, although it did flash a brief "service tire pressure system" message on the EVIC again. The envelope symbol was still there, but it's not intrusive at all.
When you scroll to the proper screen, the tire pressure display shows all four tire pressures as "_ _".

If this is the "winter mode" the dealer told me about, it works like a charm. No problem, no expense with extra sensors in winter rims, painless. I'm not OCD enough to insist on TPMS all year round.

Oddly, the owner's manual makes no mention of this at all.
