The LM25's are 16", though, right? Yeah, 18's are a pain in the butt to find/buy.

Had to go deep into Horseshoe Bay village to get them yesterday night though... what an adventure! Nearly ended up going all the way to Squamish because I missed the exit.

Thats what I had planned to do, but the weather forecast is so inaccurate.
I'm just gonna wait until the temps are consistently under 7 degrees

FML. If anyone has a key for Project Myu heptagon nuts please PM me!!!

What do you guys think?
advance auto in north van (the sponsor) ftw...got some tires for my integra from them and it was cheaper than total cost of getting it from tirerack and ipcking up at point roberts!

Don't trust weather.ca because last time I trusted their wack ass forecast I got stuck in a snow storm when their site was showing clear skies.

It's showing rain for the entire week and into the weekend here;

Temperatures seems to be on an average of about 7-9 degrees now. I swapped mines out 2 days ago (Monday). My summers are hard as rock and my winters are quite bouncy on the road No more wheel spin too!!! (well okay maybe 1 or two today )

But you got all seasons? US/CAD price differentials on A/S are much less compared to high performance summer or winters.

Such a nice day today, debating whether I should swap em on or not; since it's gonna be hovering around 7 the next week or two.
