Even if you get stuck buying rims with tires at 500 bucks, you could easily sell them for 75 a piece. I debated going that route if I couldnt find the right price wheels.

I got 4 17" Michelin X-Ice from TireRack. They were $540 delivered and 60$ more for mounting and balance. I got them because they were the top rated Snow/Ice tire in CR, #2 in TireRack reviews, and the top in numerous Scandanavian publications (who knows snow and ice better?!). I highly recommend them.

Mine is a daily driver in Minneapolis Minnesota.

I only had traction control come on once going from a dead stop (and not trying to spin). That morning there was about 8" of snow on the ground that started as freezing rain. So side streets were fluffy snow with ice underneath. Main roads were a mix of packed snow ice and slush were the salt had started to work. It handled well with the stock tires and no weight in the trunk...I do make a point to fill up the gas tank on snowy days. The thing that impressed me the most is how well it breaks in slippery/snowy conditions. I was worried at first about driving in the snow but that has now passed.

Yeah, my brother's been in the TCs for like twenty years now and he always says How ARE Ya. It's heavy on the second syllable/beat...How ARE Ya. How ARE Ya.

Then his wife came out on a business trip five years ago and I'm like, "Janet, I haven't lost my North Dakota accent, have I?" and she just threw her head back and laughed. Seems I've picked up that nasally East Coast whine. SUX TA BE ME!!

Minneapolis rocks...Prince, The Time, Replacements/Westerberg...great, great town...

I have to say, I drive slow anyway.... [ahem] but in the snow, I am careful. These Pirellis are awesome. Second only to studs for traction. My truck is 4x4 but has open differentials front and rear [Dad's bronco had limited slip, front and rear and was not to be believed on snow and ice!]. The truck does not do as well as the Mustang.

If I didn't like the paint so much, I would drive it all the time. Also those polished 3" tips, on the JBA's look incredible in the black car. Took pics and at night, I am not kidding... all you can see are the wheels!

How do I put pics in my gallery?

FRPP 4.10s with Motive bearing kit, Spydershaft one piece aluminum driveshaft, w/ Spicer 1330 U-joints, Steeda UCA and LCAs, chrome moly panhard rod. bye bye wheel hop, hello traction! SCT XCalII, BBK CAI, ZEX 100 shot.
I've written a book or two. Google David Buschhorn to laugh at my scribblings.
