What is the offset of the wheels? Can you please post a straight on photo of the front wheel, I would like to see the caliper/wheel clearance.

What did that set you back? If you don't mind sharing that is.
$1150 plus taxes mounted, balanced, nitrogen filled and installed. I didn't want my VT to look like a police cruiser :)

The tires are ultra high performance studdable winter tires so the ride is better than the OEM tires and there's no difference in the noise. Will have to see the tread wear at the end of the season.

I really like those rims. I like the dish around the bolts and I love the horseshoe spokes. They are very much like modern BBS LeMans/Sportscar rims.

Rolling those as your winter rims shows a very strong pimp hand. And did I hear you correctly? You can stud those tires?

Very nice. Very well done.

Here's the pic of the front tire. 15" wheels won't work with those calipers.

The dealer didn't have the offset information, you can probably get the information from the manufacturer at Fast Wheels Canada
Hope this helps.

Hehehe, yeah I didn't want my VT to look like a police cruiser and the best thing is that those are alloy winter specific wheels from Fast Wheels Canada

Yes, the tires are studdable, not that I can use studs here in southern Ontario :) They are also available at 1010tires.com 1010TIRES.COM - Error

Hi,
I am located in the GTA, will need to get a set of snows, what tire shop did you deal with? You can send me a PM with the details, if possible.
Thanks,

Hi Curley16, I bought local here in Rhode Island, but I used tirerack.com to see what looks good on the VT. It really helped me to decide what colour and wheels style would look best. I read on another forum where GTA locals were using tires23.com and they stated the tire prices are decent and they had a nice selection. Good luck!

Winter wheels look good. The VT looks good in almost anything! What a great pallet to work from.

After having to clean a severe dandruff case just to get out of the driveway last Friday I'm very happy with my Nexens. Driving to and from work was a breeze and when it felt like I was doing the job that a snow plow should've done earlier on side roads the TCS kicked in and they stuck to the road like glue.
