    I just ordered a bunch of cheapo 175/65 14. $220 delivered. I’ll resell the kijiji ones. I loves me wasting some moneys!

    When I first starting looking at snow tire options, I'm pretty sure that I contacted that company. They offer a great selection of snow tires. They didn't ship to the United States, however.

    I believe my extra steel rims came from Canada, however. $50 each with free shipping (Onlywheels.com). They are 5.5" wide and had the proper bolt pattern & 56.1 mm hub opening! I order from them, because they assured me that their 14" steel rims would clear the larger 2017+ Mirage front brakes. No issues with them, and the factory hub caps fit them fine, too.

    Hope you enjoy your new snow tires! Better yet, I hope you don't need them much this winter! Wishful thinking!!!

    I’ll just swap the winter tires onto the wheels that are on the car. Then put the stock tires back on in the summer. I don’t need 2 sets of wheels, swapping tires is free for me.

    I weighed the kijiji wheels, they were 32lbs, and stock aluminum wheels and ties were 24lbs a piece. Quite a bit taller too but they did fit.

    Sure, that makes total sense. Not having that option, extra steel rims pay for themselves (paying for mounting & balancing twice a year) quite fast. Plus, we have the TPMS issue to deal with (more of a pain than value).

    Good choice on the 175s. Ive put about a 1000 miles on mone. They've broken in nicely, my mpg is about 39 combined now, still down from the 45 combined I was getting from the 165s, but man if Im alot more confident about pot holes now lol.

    In case anybody else buys tires from quattro, their invoice shows up in my junk mail box for some reason every time. I was second guessing whether I actually ordered tires last night or not til it showed up as pending on my online banking thinger.

    You got the exact same wear pattern as my old 165 Potenzas. You might have the same slightly out of spec alignment as my 2014. Good news is its just barely out of spec, I bet yours is too. I checked the wear patterns on my back 175s and its not bad at all. At first I thought I was dealing with pulling on the highway to the right and then it was to the left lol. Turns out its just my car doesnt like crosswinds at 80 mph. Cant wait to see your 175s. I hope yours has that deep tread that mine does.

    What made you go with the 175s? Price I imagine. What other cars use the same 175 65 14 tires? It seems like a size from the 1990's lol.
