19 Inch Non Brembo Wheels

Will they fit over the Brembo brakes? I guess they are the premium 2011/2012 wheels? I thought anything over 18 inches would fit over the Brembo brakes. I have a meeting set up with someone who is selling those wheels with all season tires on them in the morning tomorrow. He told me they would, but a little bit of research just now is telling me they won't...

No they won't. It's not the diameter of the wheel but rather the shape of the spokes. With enough spacers they could be made to fit, but that could compromise the threads on the studs.

I am truly up a creek then. There was an ad on craigslist for 4 2012 style GT500 wheels with Michelin Pilot all-seasons for 1200 and was iffy about getting 18 inch wheels... I thought a downsize wouldn't be that great, and I thought 1200 was a lot of money for just wheels and tires.... I was about to pull the trigger and contact the guy and the ad was gone. Now after looking for WEEKS for the same wheels I haven't found damn near anything that will fit. I'm practically drooling over those GT500 wheels right now. I should've jumped on those!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, anything that fits the GT500 will fit our Brembos as they are the same. Those Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires would be over $1200 by themselves new, they are very fine all-season performance tires.

I know. Once I did the math and research I was going to call the guy but the ad was gone. I feel like a complete idiot now. There is nothing around here. There are the GT500 performace package wheels someone is selling for 2250 but they probably have summer tires on them. That's too much money for me anyway. There's another guy in Jersey that is selling the GT500 style wheels with Goodyear all seasons for 1600. I contacted the guy and he told me he turned down 1300.

Missed a golden opportunity.

Last year we got nothin'. The year before we had two stroms that dumps maybe a total of 1.5' of snow. One of those stroms was a freak surprise when people were already at work and made for a fuster cluck on the drive home. I was in my Mustang when we got a 1" dusting and it was very treacherous, but as the winter wore on I payed closer attention to the weather and when the forcast called for snow I either borrowed my dad's truck or simply stayed home.

When there is snow here in NoVA, it doesn't really matter what you are driving...you will get stuck one way or another. Either you will be stuck in traffic or stuck in traffic.

Just because people aren't prepared for it?

We haven't had anything yet here in SE Wisconsin. I haven't even put my stupid snow tires on yet. It's going to be in the fugging 50's this weekend. Definitely not typical Wisconsin winter weather.

It's not that people aren't prepared(or not just that they aren't prepared) but that traffic moves slowly during normal rush hour, and when there is precipitation people drive slowly to the point that they are basically parked in the middle of the road out of fear. Even if just 1% of drivers were ill equipped(vehicle or skill-wise) that would be enough to lock the roads down tight.

Starting Sunday we will be hitting mid 60s!! And it's my vacation week!!

It's still early in the winter season, the jet stream and other players in the atmosphere are still getting their act together. I believe this winter will truly be cold and snowy for the most part. I went snowboarding down in Snowshoe, WV last weekend and the high temperature never even hit 15 degrees during the day. I snowboarded for maybe 4 hours and when I came back, my tires were FROZEN. It felt like driving on Flintstones rock wheels. There was a dusting of snow on the road, but when I was in a spot with no snow on the road and I tried to lose traction to see how they were holding up, they would spin at the slightest difference of throttle. Taking off from a stop was a joke.
