    They sound like snow tires but really don't look like it.

    They look good? Did you have to roll your wheel well?

    Car came with rolled wells, occasionally the one on the pass side rubs a little with weight/dips. I think I'll get slightly narrower tires once these get used up.

    Look real good from a distance lol. Might take the tires off this winter to refinish and make one round again. Didn't inspect the rears very well but we suspect the drivers rear being out of round. One front has a small bend but it's not noticeable, at least in comparison to the rear. Re balanced but they were very close. Smooth on the highway which surprised me. Total transformation from stock looks. First time my daughter saw the car she said "daddy got new wheels", wife didn't notice until then.

    Chicago/Northern IL roads are not good on any wheels. Smooth is good. Glad they're working out.
