Yes I know, it's only Spring. However, as C7 package comes with Summer tires, I'm seeking opinions. For Winter specific tires (16" for the snow) would you buy a set of custom wheels or just go with plain steel rims? Thanks for the input!

I would just go with some steelies. You can usually find a nice set of older Mercedes rims on ebay or buy a set of those fake Brabus/AMG/Carlson ones. I mean hey, for a couple hundred you dont have much to lose. if they last 5 years then they were worth it I will post some links in a bit.

Ok here are some they are all on ebay:

just a few to get them started

Hi Lynn,

The Mille Miglia MM 11-2 wheels were the exact ones I was considering for winter use. How do you like them on your vehicle? Great minds think alike! :wink:

Wellll.........they've never actually been on the car. I bought them from Tirerack in early December, and the weather never got bad enough to put them on. There was one ice storm, but I just took the day off and stayed home. They may be on the car briefly in the next month when I pull the C7's for a good cleaning and waxing.

Is it possible to go down one size? I was considering putting 195/65/15, just for the winter, and stay on the Evolution wheels for summer.
