Michelin X-Ice 3 215/65-16 on Anzio Turn 16x6.5 +45... Much better than stock and no rubbing, lock to lock. Now it just needs to snow! :)

Just put Toyo Observe GSi5s on my wife's Crossover (just basic black steel rims)--and yeah, we got snow already, we live in ski country.

Now, I just gotta get some fog lights mounted.

These my friend are sexy! Limo tinting your windows would be bliss!

that looks awesome! that overall wheel diameter is what our cars should have come with from the factory, as the 205/60-16 is a bit puny

I had stopped checking this thread for replies! :D

Thanks for the compliments... I do love the way it looks now! The tires tend to 'whir' on the highway on acceleration, but are other great so far (though we haven't seen snow yet!). The first day I drove it, I thought it was the transaxle or differential making the whirring noise, and got a little worried! Realized it was the tires when I hit a freshly paved stretch of road and the noise disappeared.

Tint is definitely coming next. Just need to figure out which windows get how much tint.

I installed a Wolo "Loud and Chrome" two tone horn at the same time. Definitely a worthwhile mod! No longer embarrassed to blow my horn at people :embarrassed:
