View Full Version : winter tires and rims

I just installed some new rims and snow tires on my pe 500. So far seems very good - handling and stopping not appreciably different. I got them from Tire Rack, michelin 185 55r15 mi x ice on their 15x6.5 4-98 et 35 rims. They came in a few days, balanced and with free center caps. Believe it or not the hardest part of the job was removing the little locator pins, had to heat them up with a propane torch. I recommend this combination. I think my acceleration is a little improved with the slightly smaller wheels/tires.

Allen in vermont - ready for snow.
