After 4,000 miles on snow tires and only about 30 of them in snow, I finally put my all-seasons back on. I'll miss the N97s, but it's so nice to be able to go through the Pawtucket S curve at 65 again Smile.





Of course this means we're in for a blizzard now...

looks good. I like the wheel covers better than the caps and rings.
I wonder what hub caps would look on my 9C1?
Hopefully you don't jinx us and we stay relatively snow free.

LOL, It looks like a Buick, but no where does it say Buick Laughing. I'd like to see how they look if you want to bring them by sometime.

I think I'll keep the skinny ones on for the meet, and scrub my whitewalls. Cool

That car looks great both ways IMO

Good call, I was looking at the 225's that came w/ my RMW, they're awful skinny
They're almost gone, good tires come spring Arrow

That's what I have on the wagon. Didn't even realize it when I got the 225/75R15 spare from you, although it worked out great when one of my snows went flat last week. Fortunately I found a 225/70R15 from a 9C1 at the junkyard for the rest of the year.

Wow that's kinda weird, I didn't even look at the size. I assume most members run 225 or 235.... I run the 215's cuz it was the lowest profile I could find at the time. Do they make 195's in white walls?
I might switch over to 14" rims and run 175/70r14's

The sedans came with 215/70, 225/70, optional. and 235/70 on the LTZ. All wagons came with 225/75 except 1A2's which were 225/70.

I think mine was 215/75 factory. They kind of suck at handling, but are unbeatable for the wintah...esp. with deep tread patterns! I think some of the box cars came with 205s?!

I run 215s because they were on the car when I bought it and they were less than a year old Very Happy. I like them, though.

I actually LOOKED at my fronts this AM...215's
No WONDER they look skinny to me.
The way the wagon handles it feels like I'm constantly rolling them over trying to make the last bit of the corner.
Wouldnt drive those full time (except in the winter) no matter HOW much you paid me.
