Enkei is an OEM supplier for some Toyotas, but there are Canadian wheel plants run by Toyota for vehicles built here.

However, there was a special trim of Prius many years ago that got forged wheels made by Rays...

I’ve been happy with all the Enkei wheels from Infinity, no real wear or clear coat issues on either of my sets

maybe next season: anyone running all-weathers on rwd with lsd? just to get around town

are they good for the warrantied mileage and how's summer dry cornering performance?

choices are the toyo, vredestein, goodyear and kumho ..no michelins for my size

Are the Nokians an option?

I tried the Kumho Solus HA31 on a FR-S - awful cornering performance in the dry summer. Very unpredictable breakaway mid-corner at highway speeds on the S2S.

I've been much happier with beating on Nokians in the summer across a variety of cars (WRG2/3) but I hear the compound doesn't hold up that well to heavier cars.
In the mid 3000lb weight range, they seem to be hitting treadwear claims on RAV4 and TL we have within the family.

Haven't driven Vredestein or Goodyear, but Tirerack seems to think the Quatrac 5 weren't as good as some normal A/S in the snow and that the Goodyears suck in the wet.

Looks like the newest Vredestein doesn't do very well in the snow either.

APA seems to think the Celsius aren't as good as the WRG4.

TBH I wish the Crossclimate 2 were available in the sizes I needed since I hear they're great, but barring that, I've been very happy with WRG2/3 across different seasons in Ontario/BC.

apparently they're bringing dozens of new sizes to the A/S 4 so maybe the CC2 will also be expanded

Never say never...
but so far, even in the long term forecast, temps seem to be averaging out at 5°C which is pretty damn warm, relatively.

I bought an electric shovel back in October in preparation... I've never used anything besides a basic shovel for snow, so I'm looking forward to this new experience.

Way late to the party not even going to bother mounting this year but I got a new set of Goodyear Winter Command tires from a friend and a 2nd set of rims of craigslist for my Colorado.

$800 for the tires $300 for the rims, at least I'm set for next year.

Only thing I do notice is, it doesn't grip as superb as when it was new. General Altimax.
I'm also in the same boat riding on some Pirelli winter's, still grips like hell and the over all condition of the tires seems to be okay. Tread is about 8 years old and stored in the garage, away from the elements.

I bought a set of 215/55/17 Michelin Snow's for future replacement about 710 bucks and got like $70 in Canadian Tire money back from it.
