Ready for winter wheels

I love my style 68s but its time to start prepping my style 53s for winter. I've missed them and they have so much character. What's your setup??

Winter wheels are wheels you don't really care about because you have a nice set for the summer. Just through in my style 73s with new front tires woo woo woo

Wagon rides on Style 18s (16"). The wheels have a classic look, and are the easiest OEM setup to keep clean.

Sedan get by on the original Style 45s. Stealth appearance and reasonably easy to keep clean in the winter.

At my house, winter wheels and summer wheels are the same wheels.

I was being a smart ass.

I ordered the 16" Sport Edition A7s with Blizzak WS70s from Tire Rack. Just got delivered today. I'll post a pic of them on the car when I bolt them on the car, which with the temps being what they've been will probably be pretty soon.

The Sport Edition A7s are the only wheel smaller than 17" that will fit over my 13" brake rotors.

Why do you have winter wheels in Georgia? I have M68s with WS-70s currently, but I think I'm gunna find some 18" 3Ds to put on my ZHP wheels for this winter.
