The Tiens and Brembos make it a tad bit more difficult to do wheel swaps for winter right now. It might be something I look into for next year if I don't like the wide Blizzaks. But I was rocking these on the STi BBS' which aren't that large, but still a bit wider than most tires. It handled more amazing than I could ever expect. I've never had wheels this big before so we shall see how it all works out towards the end of the season. They drive like a dream on dry road though. Hugs corners very nicely.
So far I'm happy. Could have paid less but oh well. I'm not butthurt about it at all. Just need to learn. I guess we could just turn this into a general winter tire thread. Lots of helpful info in here already.
