Canadian (Cold climate) Evo X Owners

I'm a Canadian and it's cold and winter here, I have 2 problems that I was wondering what others have been doing with. I have the MR, so my wheels are a bit different then the GSR, and I can't find winter rims to cover my brakes, anyhow I got winter tires on the stock wheels and I am constantly getting huge snow buildup in the rear wheels to the point where I can't go above 80km/h without a bad vibration, and it's too cold to wash them, anyone else having this issue if so how are you dealing with it?

Also if the temp is below 3C the info dash beeps telling me it might be icy, which is EVERYTIME I'm in my car for the next 6 months, can I shut that off? I know it might be icy I was just outside freezing.

Otherwise all I can say is that I prefer to drive my Evo over my big 4x4 truck, the handling in snow and ice is better then anything I have ever driven, I love this car, just a few minor things I thought I'd look into.

I have a GSR, so I can't say I have the same vibration problem. Maybe buy another set of stock GSR rims - The MR BBS' are too nice for the snow anyway!

I won't comment too much on how much I love my car during winter - let's just say I would never tuck this car in a garage for the winter months. As much as I could save my X from winter damage, I'm having a blast.

I agree I love the car, the beeping is annoying for us cause we know it's winter and what that means, I can understand for other places where 3-0C is rare, but after 0 I think the car should just know we know already Was just hoping there was some weird sequence to turn it off or something, like most cars have for the seat belt chimes.

And as for wheels, I couldn't' find steel wheels to clear the brakes, so i ran the MR BBS, but I think for next year I'll try and find something else, the vibration is due to all the snow that packs in to the rear wheel, then I have to wash it out but obviously wet car at -25 (we know what that means) so I don't like that option much.

and as for the snow in the back wheel yea i get that too but it only gets in there due to spirited driving at least thats what i find, i get it in the front too lol. my tenzo 6 spokes are great for winter rims imo.
