    I'll see what the MPG hit is. I'm not a hypermiler, my main concern is wear on the suspension. I'll try these out for a while then in the next year or two spring for lighter snow tires.

    They are perfectly balanced and give a secure planted ride. Definitely makes the car feel bigger.

    Last year driving through snow drifts on country roads, I thought I was headed for the ditch. I'm confident these will do the trick.

    Ide much rather arrive safe than save 3 cents/trip as well.

    Did you paint your keyhole? Mine isn't body color. Mitsu surely did a lot of tiny miss matchings with these cars.

    While they all look great, I like the looks of your silver-colored rims better. Maybe body color has something to do with it.
