NOOOOOO....didn't you read the huge note plastered on the driver side door. Do not drive in winter on the Advan's at all. I don't want to read any more, i tried driving in light snow on my advans and slide into a curb thread. There were more than i wanted to read last year at this time.

Pony up and buy winter tires, winter rims too if you got the buck.

Do NOT use your stock tires in the winter, on ice, snow, or in temperatures near, at or below freezing or you will die or worse, wreck your car.

Get a set of stocker rims, some winter tires, and don't look back.

Auidi R8 knock off wheels, 18"x8" in gun metal - $189/wheel no tire pressure sensors.

The offset isn't the greatest and it doesn't look to mean but I've had my car on ice, dirt, mud and rain with these wheels and some Pirelli 225 45 R18 snows and it's a great set up. Total cost including mount, balance and taxes was just over $1,400 - definitely worth the piece of mind.

Pics will be up in a week or so when I'm back from holidays.

I put the OEM wheels with some old Star Specs on for the winter but I don't drive it in the snow or rain.

My car wont see the winter this year. It did when I first got it and I used the stock Advans.
Those tires suck ass in the cold/snow

Check out craigslist. Tires and rims go so much cheaper on there. It is a little more of a pain then just walking into a store. But I got a cheap set of rims and some fairly new tires for $750.

Only probably worth your while if you live in a big city.

stock advans schould not be used even if it's bolow 40F outside. not even mention the snow.
