Winter wheels/tires


Recommended Posts

Hi, all.

Any reason why I couldn't get a set of 225/40R18 snow tires on 18X8 rims for all four corners? I'm in Maryland, have driven in snow (not just fake MD snow) most of my life, plan on continuing to do so, and am currently daily driving a 996 C4 Cab. My profession dictates that I run the risk of beating the snow plows to the secondary roads, so skinny tires are my first choice.

Thanks in advance!

Jim

Does anyone know if there are OE winter rims and tires for a 2000 996 (C4)?. I'd rather not go aftermarket to keep the look of the car, but I can't seem to find anything used.

Thanks and if anyone is keeping score, I've driven my C4 in fake MD snow for a few years on my summer tires and its performed well (and way better than my 3-series RWD BMW). Anything more than a few inches would be a different story though.

Search the 996 TSBs for "winter" tires and wheels - the whole list is there.

I'm running Continental DSW's on stock wheels on my 2003 C4S this winter (in Wisconsin) and couldn't be happier. The traction on snow and slush is exceptional.

The look on the faces of SUV 4x4 drivers when I leave them spinning at the light is priceless.
