Post your winter setup! Here is mines

I'm curious to see what you guys are running so let's see it. Took this pic at the hand car wash.

My wheels: VMR 710 Velocity - 18" CSL Style Gunmetal
I don't remember the exacts of my offsets, but I think 18*8.5 fronts and 18*9.5 rears.
Tires: Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D 235/40/18 and 255/40/18
Spacers: Macht schnell 12mm rears

I like the setup, but my front wheels are too tucked, I need more poke. I think I'm going to order spacers for the front, but unsure of the mm to get for more poke without issues, maybe 10mm?

Put a quarter on the end of a piece of tape. Hang it from the outer edge of the fender and measure the distance to the edge of the tire. That will tell you the exact size spacer to get it to sit flush and you wont be guessing and wasting money.

Once you figure out your offsets, surf the web for offset calculators - i used one and it's pretty easy to figure out spacer requirements (assuming you have an optimal setup to compare it to!)

Thanks for the input guys. I think 10 or 12mm should be suffice for me.
3dkn, nice setup with the 219m wheels.

Keep the pics coming.

I bought my car with the 220M 19's mounted on them but almost immediately wanted the 219M's to use as winter wheels. I don't get lucky too often but I found a set for sale locally on here already wrapped in winter tires with TPMS for a very good price. Best of all, the wheels were mint without a single curb rash and the tires were almost brand new.
