wanting to build my own snow tire package with rims. am looking for a slightly beefier (wider) snow tire that will fit


I have a 2012 Coupe that, when we ordered it, the salesman misunderstood the tire size and we wound up with 15".  Nothing wrong with that, but combined with the light weight, the Coupe is pretty squirrely in the winter and I am looking to buy Blizzaks AND rims so I can just swap them out without remounting every season.  I live in the Buffalo area and the beefier tire width will help with the gush ruts here.

Any ideas?   I read the club's tire pages on the topic and all the postings are quite old.

Also looking for a Mini qualified mechanic in the Southtowns.  I have to drive an hour to get to the dealer and want someone closer who knows what they're doing.

Nothing like the "bloody wants," eh?

 

Looking forward to a reply...

Are you on Facebook? There is a set of 16" wheels & tires, on the club page. They are all seasons, on now, but you could snows on.

Have you tried aftermarket sites? I've checked 4Wheelonline they have Blizzak available.

Thx. Have decided to ease into this--buying Blizzaks this winter and will have them mounted this year. If it works like I think it will, I'll go with the rims, too. Decided to stick with the smaller tire size because of the taller sidewall--smoother ride.
