My wife gave me the go-ahead (I NEVER thought she would) to get another set of wheels for the Avon A/Ss I just got, but I'm definitely budget minded. My question is: Should I get 1) the Mille Miglia MM-S set for $716 at Tirerack, 2) the set at gmpartsdirect (PN 17800210) for $1425, or 3) go to e-bay and buy reconditioned OEMs for about $1600? :confused: Any thoughts are exceedingly welcome.:welcome:

There are a few folks selling used wheels.
I don't think that anyone is currently selling used OEM wheels ... seems like they go REALLY FAST around here. Anybody got any?

I would go with the MM-s for winter as I did last year. They work fine and look good. Jeff
What's your opinion vis-a-vis the gmpartsdirect wheels? Can they really justify twice the cost of the MMs?

A narrower wheel is better for the snow. (MMs are 8" - stockers are 8.5")[/QUOTE
I guess I would understand this if the tire also was narrower, but my Avons are 245/45WR18s ... how would the wheel being narrower make a difference given the same tire? I mean, there may a rational reason, but I'm not seeing it. (BTW, I appreciate your input ... thanks.:))

Tire contact patch is narrower on a narrower rim.
