Do you have the competition package? I am curious if that would cause rubbing with the 9.5" up front...

Oh I see. Yeah the wheel gaps are big but with the competition package and the stock 19"s...it's better. These 18"s are my snow setup so I'm okay with a gap. Especially since with EDC I'm not gonna put on a lower suspension or springs.

How are the Blizzaks in normal driving, not snow or ice?

They're as good as any snow tire I've had. Little knobby feeling but decent.

Indeed it's a bit wide... But I wanted to find a setup that would satisfy these parameters:

1.) Square setup so I could rotate

2.) Bolt on wheels without spacers needed

3.) Wheels I could use for track tires in the spring/summer


255s are a bit wide but anything skinnier wouldn't have fit.

is it $900 for each rim? Or does quality of "1" mean set of 4?

It did great! Very happy. We had a rough winter here in Pittsburgh and my neighborhood is up some serious hills. No problems.
