Okay. Just had my Craigslist wheels and tires installed. They need a cleaning, but I'm kind of digging the height on this setup.

I don't know who you are asking, but I got mine from Kam's tires in Kitchener. They are on Lancaster street. I think the rims and tires were $1200 incl taxes.

What tires are those?

1200 all in is a good price if you're running a decent tire.

17" Steelies($94 each CDN)
Falken HS449 Tires 225/45R17XL 94V($164.13 CDN) -- $100 rebate online as well, so saves 25 bucks a tire. So really $140 bucks each

On a full send on dry pavement today they can't put down all the power. Skipped all the way through 1st, and part way through second.

The Hankook Ventus that came with it would skip a little bit in first, and chirp on second.

But.. I didn't buy them to launch WOT so hopefully they're good for the snow. They get really good reviews.

I put on Sailuns...a Chinese tire...but have never had issues with them. I put Hankooks on my other Hyundai, a Tucson.

I find both ride really rough up around 110 km/h. But that might just be the aggressive winter treads. Grip extremely well...just not much for highway crusing.

Just a quick update...took them to a better shop. Had them rebalanced with a better technician and they now handle 120 km/h and highway speeds with ease.

Guess I underestimated the importance of a properly balanced tire.
