Anyone need some very good winter rubber?

$125.00 Pick up only.

Toronto and area :D

I would have considered it if I lived in a snowy area. Great offer though... too bad you didn't get asking price.

Thanks :)

I'll definitely get Pirellis again for the Fit this winter.

Yes, I can move on with my great plans of putting new Winters on the stock black rims on the Fit, then get some alloys (as we discussed :wink: ), put my stock all-seasons on those, and be ready for next spring. My finances won't allow me to make all the purchases at once, but I figure I have this summer, next fall, and next winter to make it all fall into place :D

can winter tires be used other times of the year, like if you were carrying them around for some reason, and got a flat, and your spare was flat too? I don't know how that would happen, but just a hypothetical question.

Sure, you could do that. But winter tires aren't meant to be used for any extended period of time when the temperature is above 50 F.

Winter tires crack badly under warm temp. If you drive them year long, you're greatly reducing their life. Also, there's a lot more friction and noise, best to switch to summer/all seasons.

Tobi, I think he was asking about using one winter tire as a spare temporarily.

I thought the only downside to having winters in the summer was teh tread wear, other than that, because it has soft compound, it should be more slick than general all-seasons. And carrying a winter around as a spare is just unneccessary dead weight. The "doughnut" wheel is more than enough.

I'd rather carry a full-size tire. Donuts are great if you're not going to go more than 50 mph, but otherwise pretty useless.

i much prefer a full size spare. the "donut" in the STi is the same circumference as the rest b/c of the AWD but you still aren't supposed to go over 55 mph. i have full size spare in the corolla b/c i had to get 4 new rims so i kept one of the old ones and the best tire the next time i bought new tires. bingo, full size spare :D
