I should have prefaced my situation. I drive...a lot! I had to ditch my WRX for something I never imagined. 185 miles a day runs its toll on the wallet.
Most people don't have that much daily dash time. And as much as I enjoy the Niro, its sketchy driving aggressively in 4 to 6 inches of snow with wrong wheel drive for 90 mile spurts.
Ohio is terribly unpredictable.

And yes...I sold my WXR in world rally blue for a woman.
I now have NEITHER in lieu of a Niro😂🤪🤔

So buy my wheel package 🤟

I wish I could buy this, it's a really great deal!


I used to have a WRX too, fun cars I got my Niro under similar circumstances, my long commutes were costing me a fortune in my Audi. Needed something practical, albeit definitely not the kind of car I would typically buy. I kept the Audi but I haven't really driven it much in the last 9 months since I got the Niro.

I used to believe that too. I never ran winter tires until around 2006 during a heavy winter in the inland northwest. A lot of roads didn't get plowed and the packed snow turned to an ice-like ice.
I got a set of Bridgestone REVO1 (the best winter tires I've ever had) and the difference was night and day. It was like having studs. Amazing.

I run BFG G-Force Comp2 A/S in my Soul now, they get a pretty decent winter rating. So I left them on at first snow last year just to see.
No, they are in no way comparable to my Bridgestone Blizzak WS80. No way.

Ok, I’ll bite. $350 cash. Would you mind the smallest of detours and come through Dayton instead of Columbus?

Hi cruztaker. I sent you a private message with my contact information. Let me know if you can read it - I don't think you can reply until you hit 10 or 15 forum posts.

@cruztaker . Hey, it is late July. Have you already sold the wheels? Still willing to buy.

Well thank you! Just saved me $350. I admit to being disappointed. Just talked to my tire store and they will switch the wheels out seasonally for free.
