    Winter Tire/Rim

    Winter is coming and this will be my first 1/2 winter with my rex (deploying in Jan) but still I'm letting my uncle take care of it while im gone and he can run some errands in it so i dont want to leave him hanging I need to get a set of rims and tires, and i know that tiretrack is a good place to start, im just wondering what everyone preference on the tires are, like if your like pirelli or bridgestone, and if you decide to get studs or performance snow?

    Also on a side note, if y'all dont mind, adding in what kinda rims? I've read that 16' is the way to go, but after that im lost.... I'm looking for something decent looking but safe.

    Thank you for your help!!

    Tirerack is helpful. If you call them up they can help you pick out a set specifically for your car.

    I personally have Blizzaks on 16 inch steel wheels. You're in NJ, I would say that studs are quite overkill. You don't want to drive studded tires on dry pavement, and you don't want to use the stock summer tires when it is below 40 degrees out. So you want performance snow tires that you can drive on safely when there is no snow but it is cold out.

    for a good inexpensive combo, get a set of 16" steelies and a good set of snow tires.
