    Pizza cutters

    Anyone running 145/65-15's for the snow?
    I've got a set of Yokahama IG20's coming, and a set of new OEM Mini Cooper steelies.
    $325 total

    This should guarantee zero snowfall for the Chicago area this winter.

    Not I. But I'm interested in seeing what they look like and of course how they work.

    Yes, hopefully this venture does not become another one of my failed experiments.
    The tires are spec'ed for 4 to 5 inch rim width, I'm at 5.5 inch. This concerns me some, but having seen so many tuner cars running crazy oversize rim widths, I suspect I will be fine.

    There are some 155/60R15 TS800 Conti's that may be a great choice, but they are expensive, and just from the looks, I wonder if they are as good on snow and ice. AT 155, their contact patch is actually slightly narrower than the 145 Yokahamas.

    They bead right up on 5.5's, and look like real pizza cutters. I should have put a 165/65 next to it.

    The tires came from Tire Rack, wheels are from Mini. And, I can only wish that was my garage floor.
