    Got the same colour coming, like to see a pic of the rear with those 265's....that's wild!
    Actually, a pic of the tint too. Haven't decided on that yet...am even looking into silver tint.

    Cooler weather coming.....good for turbo fun, but also gets me thinking about winter tires. Dealer is working on a package - they found some nice aftermarket rims. Just need to put on a car and confirm clearance, they expect to put Falkens on. Looking at about 1300.00.

Let me know what you guys do..actually the all-seasons the cars come with should be good enough for winter correct? maybe I just need to replace the rims.

    Thought of going with the all seasons, but will extend their life a get some better stopping. A little more rubber with the 17s will help with the ice ruts. For those down south - the ice builds up on the roads and the drive is like a logging road.

    Re: Canadian

    What you guys doing for this Canadian winter? I'm assuming on lease you just cant drive around with the rims that we got with the car, gonna get ruined with all the salt? But I don't want black steelies either. I'm a n00b with this stuff maybe someone can PM me and help me out.

    Me too. Some pics and info when you get it done would be great; I've currently got a guy on it, but he has yet to get back to me.

    I just picked up 4 OEM 17" rims w/sensors with Nitto SN2 tires, installed, balanced, programmed, 1520 + tax.

    (Not too sure how good the Nitto tires are , but I was really after the OEM rims)

    Re: Canadian

    Since mine came with the stock 17" wheels, I decided to use those as my winter wheels and pick up something nicer next spring as a summer wheel. So I just put a set of Michelin X-Icei2's (some nice discounts on those now over the newer i3 version) on the stockers for winter duty.

    Gonna need the winters - had some wet roads and the temp had a little chill lately. The back end wants to come out accelerating onto the highway.
