Don't forget to consider used snow tires/wheels from someplace like CraigsList.



Here's a pic of the 16" Blizzak WS60s I bought used. They had approximately 5k miles on them, and came installed on an old set of WRX wheels (don't know what year WRX this wheel style is from). The previous owner did a barely adequate job of painting them black; it's good enough that you have to get within 10 feet to see any issues. I might repaint them when these tires wear out, which won't be for a long time.

These came without TPMS sensors, and I'm not doing anything about that, so my dashboard light is on.

$280 for the set of four wheels/tires.

Tirerack has a set of 16x6.5 for $58 each. I'm wondering if I can get some cheaper somehow...
Not a noob question by any means, I have a sport. I got them for $40 a wheel from the local subaru dealer. Brand new off of a base that they had outfitted with aftermarket wheels, they are brand new. They're 15x6.5 195/65/15. I also bought tpms sensors and tires from tire rack. I think in total I paid $730ish. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

was that a special deal on the wheels? I would have expected the dealer to charge more than that for steel wheels.

I've done so much business with them that the guy gives me the hook up fortunately. He definitely gave me a great deal that's the only reason why I went with steelies over wheels from tire rack also I wanted 15's for extra sidewall.
