I'm waiting for tires23 to get mine in stock. Everyone is putting winters on already? Is it cold enough? I was going to paint mine before I put them on anyways so it'll be at least a couple weeks before mine go on.

I had mine on for a week now..

My car looks horrible now..
Tried to LC.. it was sliding.. lol
lol i think LC is going to melt your winter tires faster... next thing you know you'll be hauling tarmac.

Here's my winter mode:


Forgot to take a picture before the summer tires went off...

Ya, too early, IMHO. I got my winter tires/steelies last week, but I'm not mounting them yet. It was 17C and sunny today in Ottawa. 18C and sunny tomorrow. No snow or sub-zero degree temps in the 14-day forecast. So, I won't be mounting them for a while, I guess :thumbsup: Winter tires are meant for colder temps and are made with softer rubber. Using them now, you are just wearing them away at a much faster rate. I do my own mounting, so I'm holding-off until the last moment.

^ Good point. I put it on way too early. Last couple weeks the weather was terrible, so I thought it was gonna snow soon :mad0259:

I put mine on that day it snowed (a little)

I leave for work early and didnt want to risk being stuck on summer tires, besides I value my summer tires more than my winter tires.

Next week temps should drop to 5C

looking at your car, did you only change the rear bumper? sides still look stock. The back looks amazing though. :thumbsup:
you got it, rear bumper and a subtle :wink: turboback exhaust.
i've got a euro-lip up front... barely hanging on.
otherwise, car cosmetics are stock.
