I am hopeful the Amazon Prime Day sale brings a discount to the Genius Darwin Black rims as 17x6 front and 17x7.5 rear will be my size choice shod with 205/40's up front and 225/35 in the rear.

I will use my current Allutec 15 inch wheels 15 x5 front 15x6 rear and get a second set of 15x6 for the front and turn that in to a Beta set with 205/50 15's up front and 215/55 15's in the rear.

My winter set will become my original set up of 15x4.5 15x5.5 with 155/60 15 front and 175/55 17 contiwinter tires .

Alpha's used at car meets track nights and country road trips.

Beta's used as daily driving set up. Spring, summer, fall.

Winter set. For the cold frosty snow season.

Here in the UK we just get average weather all year round, so stick to the factory tyres all year. Though we can get the occasional bad winter, snow, ice, blizzards, and that's when I just stay in bed watching TV, drinking tea and eating toast and jam, and thankfully retired :D

PS...some petrol heads here, do go for summer/winter tyres, but just a limited number of Smart owners, that need to be somewhere in the snow.
