I think Pila_Jones runs those rims in the winter on his WRX. At least photochop it for us. Could you lower it, too?

Question

since this thread is about winter rims,

Are the studded tires they sell at Costcos any good?

they are a good price too, much cheaper than those nokians i wanted to get.
i don't know what rims to put the studs on, maybe i'll put em on some black steelies

i'm also gonna check the dealer for the studs/rim package they had before.

The studded tires at costco are kinda low quality. They only have 1 ply in the sidewall, so a pothole can do some damage. My parents just had two go flat last week. The studs don't hold up to long either.

Never had any problems with he Costco tires. I think any tire will blow up if you hit a big enough pothole. Good tires for the price. I mean what is the alternative.......blizzaks, Firestone? Nokians?
