Snow Tires and Rims

I'm gonna need to get some snow rims and tires for next winter. I think the best tires out there are Nokian Hakkapeliitta R's. They come in 235/35R19 and 255/40R19.

Default Snow Tires and Rims

I'm gonna need to get some snow rims and tires for next winter. I think the best tires out there are Nokian Hakkapeliitta R's. They come in 235/35R19 and 255/40R19. If I pick up a set of stock sport package rims, will these tires fit those rims?

I'd really prefer to get some cheap 18" rims...are there any out there yet that will fit over the sport brakes? Thanks!

Haven't seen any cheap steel rims. Forgestar is in the process of making 18" alloy wheels, which will be about $1300 delivered.

cheep rims are out there not sure steel ones will clear sports brakes. I would recomend going with Michelin pilot alpins for tires. I have them on my G37 and they rock. I also had blizzacks and they suck a$$. Really I hadthem for one winter and sold them.
