Mounted stock 17" winter tires on Rondo Rims (08 or 09).

They bolted right on, no problem, and I think they look pretty good.

Danny, I'm in Toronto, winters are tame here compared to Minnesota.

The tires are Bridgestone Blizzak WS70s. They obviously don't perform as good as my summers on dry pavement, and i have yet to get to test them out in the snow!

They balanced very well and i have not noticed any increase in road-noise.

Those 18" chromes would look pretty ragged in a few months of winter driving, you have a big advantage living in a warm climate.

A lot of people run black steel 16" rims in the winter here, practical but not very sexy.

Kia Canada offered a package with some very nice 16" winter alloys and Falken Espia tires. Winter has hit here in the Yukon with a vengeance, and the tires are fantastic! Feel like I'm driving a winter rally car!
