Winter wheels and tires
SOLD AS OF 11/14 - THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR LOOKING!
Hi All - just registered on the forum, but have been a lurker during our Smart ForTwo Pure (edit: Forgot to mention it was a 2015) ownership. We had to return our Smart (lease) and are left with a set of winter wheels and tires. The tires have about 4,000 miles on them and wheels a few more as I bought them used.
I lived in Buffalo (now in New Jersey) and this setup worked wonders, especially when thinking that during the first snow storm I tried to drive on the stock tires and made it nowhere.
Tires are Dunlop Wintermax 175/65/R15 on all four wheels. The wheels are not staggered, instead are all rear wheels square (read on forums that this setup works).
Other people ran a wide square setup and reported no issues, I had a different experience few times when I hit a pot hole and the tire rubbed my front left fender. Just wanted to throw it out there... Other than that though, the ride was nice, and the grip was amazing.
Asking $650. Located in Clifton, NJ, willing to deliver/install if you do not live too far. Thanks for looking!
Edit: Just a side note, I forgot to mention that the wheel came off a 2015, so they should fit 2008 to 2015 models.
