Replace tires only, or spring for arachnids?

    With me needing new summer tires, and a set of TPMS for my winter wheels, I was seriously giving thought to just springing for a new set of arachnids (with the wheels, tires, and TPMS) and then taking my current set of sensors and adding them to my winter wheels.

    My only reason for considering this would be my current 21" turbines are going to need a bit of refurb to fix the rash and I am not sure if that is money well spent given the current cheapness of both the arachnids and the turbines.

    What do you think?

    I would (and did) get the Arachnids.

    They are lighter and stronger than the turbines. Ditch those and use the arachnids in the summer and 19’s in the winter if applicable.

    I'm only 1 referral away from the Arachnid's. Would be willing to sell if I was able to secure that one more referral.
