    Winter Wheel and Tire install (with Pics)

    Just installed a wheel and tire package on my 2013 wrx.

    They are 215/55R-16 Bridgestone Blizzak tires with black steels from tire rack.

    Got the wheels and tires mounted/balanced, and shipped for $809 after a $50 rebate (that i already spent)

    Good deal?

    That's what I call the old rally car look - put a bra on it and it will be complete - I had them for years when I drove the Audi A4. I want a winter package with inexpensive alloys and I don't want to have to fool with centering rings or weird offset issues - any suggestions would be appreciated. I picked up my ride today '13' base hatch in ice silver and it was spitting snow - so I need the winter tires!

    Looks like my sister's Corolla. No offense intended at all. Car is the same color and has steelies.

    I'm thinking of plasti-dipping my steelies red with chrome center dishes for a silly old school look:

    I skipped my TPMS. Personally it wasn't worth it to me and if you aren't checking your tire pressure on a weekly basis in cold weather (especially the Delmarva area where temperatures fluctuate big time) then you really should be. The light doesn't bother me in the slightest and thanks to the fellow clubwrx members, I didn't need centering rings for my steelies. Just made sure they installed while the car was lifted and torqued in a star shape. I'm getting them retorqued in a day or so since I've reached the 100 miles on them. Actually quite a smooth ride (general altimax arctic tires)

    Yea, I can live with the dash light on for a few months. It's not worth the money to me.

    Yes, I skipped the TPMS too. Too much money for something that you should be checking on a regular basis anyway. It would have added over $100 more to have them installed AND they would have to be reset at a dealership to make the car recognize the sensor... Too much work/money just to keep a light off for 3-4 months.

    I agree on the ride (i know they are different tires) but it is pretty smooth.

    Is there a fuse to the TPMS that could be pulled? My '03 doesn't have TPMS (thankfully), but it seems like there's something you ought to be able to do about the indicator...
