    Winter Rims and Tires

    I realize this is VERY early to be thinking about it, but what are my options for Winter Rims and Tires for my 2005 STi? I would appreciate your collective opinions.
    Thanks!

    Tons of options depending on how much money you want to spend!

    I would probably look for a used set of STi wheels and pick up a quality winter tire (debatable on what is the best but there are many options...I run blizzaks and like them).

    Whatever you get you want to make sure they fit over your brembos.

    Many wheels with a 5x114.3 lug pattern will fit. You just have to have a proper offset (+40ish to +55ish) and make sure they clear the Brembos. Any MY 05 and newer STI wheels would fit...

    whatever you get you want to have a narrow wheel and tire. wider is not better in winter conditions. as for tires i have heard nothing but good reviews for the blizzaks.
