Cold Weather Wheels/Tires

Hey,

Wanted to get your thoughts on what I should do for some cold weather wheels and tires. Not snow, just 40 degrees and below on nicer days here in Ohio. I am going to be running TSW Nurburgring/Hankook Ventus Evo V12 K110 for my warmer weather months.

The dilemma comes in for my winter packages. I could sell the stock Pirelli PZeros and put some Ultra High Performance All Seasons on the stock Brembo wheels or I could buy 2010 18x9 GT500 wheels (Buy Ford Racing Parts - 2010 Mustang GT500 Wheel Set) shod in some nice rubber. I would break even pretty much either way.

Thoughts?

Either way your"re going to have to buy tires, so I don't see how buying just tires can be cheaper than buying tires and wheels...

Most guys are getting 1500 for low miles take off brembos. 2010 GT500 wheels are 600 shipped and continentals in 255/46-18 are 183. Roughly the same money.

My car is a btembo car and could probably get enough out of the pirellis for all seasons.
