Probably too early to think about this but anyone going to put on steelies and winter "snow" tires this winter? If so, what size steelies? .... or try to find some cheap alloys?

Ill have 4 EX 18"s for cheap. Much better snow tire selection for the 18"s.

Upgrade your wheels and use your stockers for winter mode.

You'll probably have to go with 17" steel wheels. 17X6.5 with 235/65R17 winter tires.

They normally sell steel wheels on Tirerack for about $80 a piece. Sometimes you can find regular 17" wheels for that price.

Thanks for the tip on 17s. Was curious if anything smaller than 18 would be ok (assuming its ok if it clears brake calipers).

(Don't feel too good slapping on winter tires on 20" alloys. I would prefer more sidewall.)

Question: Anyone going to put in additional tire pressure monitoring sensors on snow/winter wheel+tire combo?

You should be fine with 17", I wouldn't go any smaller than that though. https://www.discounttire.com has a some decent looking cheap wheels on their site.

I will probably use aftermarket wheels for wintertime and factory 20’s for summer time.
