It's been relatively mild in Boston so far but I just realized's almost freakin' December. So I figured I should get my act together and look into some snow tires. This is a new concept to me as I have never bought snow tires. That's right, I ran all-seasons last year.

But this year I have low profile summer tires courtesy of the stock set-up on the Focus ST. I have no idea what I'm looking for but I am leaning towards getting a cheap smaller wheel so I can have thicker walled tires. I don't want to spend a ton because of the following reasons:

1) I'm kinda cheap

2) I will likely only put a few thousand miles on them this winter

3) I am not overly concerned about it's really a just in case kinda thing


Anywho, I am more than receptive of suggestions on tires and wheel combos. Feel free to toss color ideas as well...the ST is red.

Black doesn't look too bad.
