View Full Version : wheels and suspension in winter

12-05-2005, 08:05 PM
I'm about to get bilstein shocks/H&R sport springs installed on the car and i also have a set of 17x8 superleggeras with pirelli pzero nero M+S tires. Winter is here, but should I put the new wheels and tires on or keep the old 16's with pretty worn contisport contact crap stock tires? I think the pzero M+S's might handle better in the snow and ice. Id rather be safer than protect the finish of my wheels, because I can't afford winter tires for the 16's this season. If I do go with the new wheels/tires, I will be sure to keep the wheels waxed and clean as can be.

Also, snowed the other day and I smelled gas when I was comming to stops. It went away after a while, but is this normal?
