15" steelies (or aluminum, whichever is cheaper) w/Michelin Arctic Alpins. I'd want to spend around $500Cdn for everything.

I'd be interested in a similar setup as well.

I'd be interested in a tire/wheel combo that would allow the speedometer to remain accurate. If that means 17" rims & tires, that's fine with me, but I'd like something to put on for the winter so my chrome rims don't get destroyed.

BTW, how much do the non-chromed 17" PT Turbo rims cost? I know the chromed ones are outrageously priced at $600 apiece through my dealer. If the non-chromed are too costly (>200 apiece) do you know of other rims that will fit w/o adjusting spacers?

[edit]
To summarize, I'd be interested in 17" (or other combos that keep the speedo accurate) alloy rims. I wouldn't go above $200 apiece for the rims. Obviously I'd need mud & snow tires also so let me know what pricing you can get on tires.

Actually if you could email me that would be the easiest. I am definitely interested in a winter [:0] setup.

There are all kinds of Mopar 16x6 Alum rims all over the place got my 4 for 180.00 and then put Dunlop M3's on them @ 92.00 each. My brother just bought the same wheels for 124.00 for all 4. With the correct tire 205/55/16 they have the same dia. as the 17" so spedo will be right.

You can run 15 steelies and still keep the speedo acurate. You just need taller sidewalls. For you mississauga guys check out Johnson and Magwood. I've dealt w/ them alot lately and have always had a good experience.

this is the info on winter time tires and wheels i could do a set of 15" steels with tires and hubcaps shipped to you for $575.00 how ever you can go to tire rack and put together a set of 15" steels and tires starting around 436.00 so i think for the cheapest deal tire rack would be the place to go.

thanks tommy
