Installed my Breyton GTS winter wheels

After spending weeks trying to decide which wheels to get for my winter wheels I finally settled on 18" Breyton GTS wheels and blizzak tires from tirerack. I know I had a hard time finding a lot of wheel pictures when I was looking so I figured I'd post some pictures.

I am defiantly interested in seeing how they perform in the snow. I have lived in Wisconsin for 12 years now and it never occurred to me to get winter tires until I started reading this forum. I always assumed all season tires were good enough. After seeing so many post on this forum about winter tires, I decided to do a little research and the differences I read about were quite an eye opener.

I ran Pirelli Sotozero's last winter and we got a total of 4" of snow! They're back on this winter and the verdict is still out on them.

Nice winter shoes - i have the year round summer versions in 20" I haven't seen my stock 309's in months That being said you will notice a definite improvement in ride (even though they are winter tires) vs. the stock RFT's
