So just been looking at tires... and some of them come with odd fluorescent colored markings on the tread? New tires, that is. Specifically, at the bottom of the tread. What's all that about?

I tossed my Toyo Observe Garit KX on steel wheels, hopefully they will hold up and perform decent in snow and on ice.

Might be picking up some brand new hankook 175/65/14 winters from work for cheap and mount them on my stock rims.
But it is gonna look hideously thin, especially with the high stock offset.
Stock rims look bad enough on my car with 195/60/14s.

You guys do know that winter tires aren't just for snowy weather right?
The rubber compound used to make winter tires stay soft in cold temperatures unlike summer tires which are rock hard and don't grip. Technically you're supposed to switch to winter tires when outside temperatures get down to 7*C.

So managed to score some Blizzak LM22 in 215/45R18 off a Mazdaspeed6 owner... $600, pricey but the tires were still pretty new.

Am set for winter!
