I'm in snowy upstate NY and the winters can be pretty nasty.. Want to do replace the factories with some nice looking rims, but since I need to drive in some nasty, snowy, icy conditions wondering/worried whether I should get rims - or if I can manage to play it sife by a smaller rim - like a 16 inch.. Doe anyone have any experience with this situatioin / rims in snowy climate????

Thanks -

get some nice rims with summer rubber

and keep the stock steelies/alloys, buy some good snow tires and put them on there, or keep your 4 seasons on there...

Yah - that's what I'm thinking... how much you think I should expect to pay (reasonable) for someone to do a good job of putting on the rims and then taking off an putting on the steelies?

If I put new rims on - 17 inch from the small factories do I have to adjust anything - for example won't the new wheel size fuck with like the speedometer or odometer..?

Just put on the nice rims on the summer...Then put the bad ones on in the winter and let those rims get fucked by the salt.

Go look at that tirecalculater to see how much the tire will mess with the speedometer (it shouldn't do too much)....I wish i had the link.

Make sure you have the correct offsets and that the rim can actually fit ur car. If it can you should be able to put it right on.
