If getting a set of used wheels is difficult in your region then just get the tires for now.  The Blizzaks are awesome snow tires as well, but I didn't recommend them because they are pricey.  But if you can get a good deal them in the correct size, then I would say definitely go that route.  Perhaps mention to the manager that you are in fact a loyal customer.  Sometimes the small guys will give dedicated loyal customers a bit of a discount, or maybe mount them free of charge.  Never hurts to ask.

I don't know what you want four tyres for Mattz. Two should be plenty! Anything that needs more has to many wheels and should be avoided!  :)

Yeah, I know, Dave... that's fine for us, but I need four tires for my wife's vehicle:

Matt, did you get your tire situation figured out?

Yes Scottie, I did.  Turns out, I only need three tires for my wife's vehicle - that fourth one's cosmetic.



Sorry.  I went ahead and ordered the Blizzaks through my local guy - he'll install them next Saturday.  Tires only; I'll worry about extra wheels some other time.

Thanks again, everyone, for your input!!
