    Hello guys. This winter is the first full winter for most of us. Just want to see if you can post pictures of your winter set up. Did you go with a cheap set of wheel?

    I have. LR RWD but I will stick with my stock all season for now and see how they do. But if I’m getting winter tires, I’m looking at Nokian HAKKAPELIITTA R3 at Discount Tire. With the lowest priced wheel, out the door is less than $1400.

    Bought a second set of Aeros, getting Hakka R3s installed whenever I get off my ass and actually order them.

    EDIT: Nice how this forum destroys all formatting.
    This is what I did. Tesla installed the tires from Discount tire and swapped my wheels for me.

    Thanks. I’ve yet to see anyone who opt for cheap alloy wheels.
