I want to thank those that suggested the Ciao Vernazza rims and Pirelli Snowcontrol tires. I bought assembled and balanced from Tire Rack. Great service. They have been awesome in snow!

I love getting deliveries from Tire Rack! Bought some Ciao 17 inch wheels and autocross tires from them, quick delivery from their Georgia location to South Carolina.

I too use the Pirelli Snowcontrol 3 tires... FANTASTIC kit! +1

Keeps [most of] the handling, and superb winter grip.

My wheels are 16" Sparcos recommended by Tire Rack - 100x4 though, so I need wobble bolts, have to remove locator pins, and use a centering ring. 5 minutes extra work per swap... :ImOkayWithThis:

I also have pirelli winter tires, winter carving edge and have been very impressed with them. They have been put to the test a few times already this winter, including last Tuesdays snow storm in NY, and haven't failed me.
