Default Tire Rack snow tire packages...

I was just on Tire Rack's site looking at their snow tire packages (planning for winter already) and is anyone else bothered that the steel wheel they offer that fits the Impreza is silver painted? I love the look of snow tires on black steelies, it's the ultimate in utilitarian. Just imagining my Subaru with ghetto silver steelies on it causes me to shudder. Eventually I want to upgrade to 17" wheels, but if I put snow tires on my stock wheels, then I HAVE to go out and buy new wheels and tires in the spring.
Silver painted steelies... gross.

I "won" a set of stock BBS wheels off Ebay for my winter tires....now I just need the tires.

Edit: I just ordered the winter tires of my choice. Now I am all set for playing in the snow. Bring it on old man winter.

I got a set of 16" black steelies from allsubaru.com for pretty cheap last year... you can try contacting Subie Gal and see if she still has some available.
