    I plan to get a set of 18” or 19” wheels with winter tires, 10mm narrower in section width than the 20s, so 225s.

    Replace with Pilot Sport A/S 3+. Got no time to be swapping wheels every 6 months.

    19" TST Wheels in Matte Black from Tsportline w/Pirelli Winter Sottozero... It's a no brainer.

    I thought the P+ (20") won't allow anything under 20" due to caliper size?

    The 18” TST will fit over the calipers. Just be sure you select the Performance Upgrade Package from the drop-down menu so the center is milled out to fit around the lip on the hub.

    The 18 or 19" TST package look good. What are the cheaper options folks have found, i.e. if buying separately? Also what is the story with TPMs - are you fitting these?

    @scrapps disagrees that I don't have time to switch wheels every 6 months. maybe he can come over and switch them for me? Just let me know dude and we can set up a schedule.

    Only had the car for 36 hours before she went to the detailer for tint, paint correction and PPF =( Panel gaps were great, interior fit and finish was great. She drives like a BEAST! As far as the paint... I'm glad she is getting a full paint correction from a reputable detailer. I'll leave it at that for now =)

    I have the tires and TPMS set but I am still waiting for the wheels...and my car.
    I have my delivery scheduled for tomorrow afternoon in Kansas City!

    I probably won't know how the TPMS work until I get the whole set changed over when local daytime temps drop below 40 consistently--probably some time in November.

    **Just got an idea**
    I will bring the TPMS set with me to my delivery tomorrow and see if the service center can check the programming on them.
