As much as I love my car, the stock 18 inch rims with performance summer tires just aren't practical for Colorado winters. Luckily, Bryce had some snow tires that he wasn't using this winter. The tires were for 17 inch rims, so it was good incentive to look for a set of spare wheels to dedicate as a winter set-up. I wasn't looking for something this fancy, but I found a great deal on craigslist. The timing couldn't have been better. We're driving up to the mountains to celebrate Christmas this weekend, and we've heard that there is a lot of snow up there!
