I'm happy to announce that I have officially done the correct thing this year and purchased specific wheels and tires that fit my vehicle (at retail) for my winter setup. For those of you that know what happened last season, I will NEVER make that mistake again :)
Since I wasn't trying to fit tires that were in my garage to a set of cheap aftermarket rims, I had lots of options. I decided to go with the burliest and best snow tire they had with studs. Go big or go home, right?!? Kummer family - there will be no issues going up to the mountains this holiday season, I promise!!!!
