    Winter setup - new wheels and rubber.

    Aftermarket rims - 20s, Bridgestone Bizzaks 275/40R20, TPMS, center caps, mount, balance and shipping (packed well in boxes) for $2,300. Very pleased.

    Purchased from retailer through e-bay. Great responsiveness and turnaround - rcvd within 7 days. Can't remember the name of retailer but can look through my files if you are interested.

    Thx for sharing, looks very nice. I also considered the 20" stormer + blizzak setup but wanted something a bit more all-season. Went with the Cooper Zeon's on some flat black spiders (thx dantheman1). Here are some pics in Yosemite this weekend.

    Looks great! But just fyi, those aren't stormers and they aren't a new style, they are the factory supercharged "spider style" wheels from '06-'09 RRS, before the evoque was released. Just sayin

    Cooper Zeon's are nice tires. Been running them for 3 yrs or so in the summer months only. They don't perform that well in icy conditions tho. I switch to Pirellis in the winter. Much better snow and ice tire.
    The blizzacks are the best tho.

    Yeah I actually had the Pirelli's last season, but wanted something that I could ride all year and that looked cooler (yes, coolness counts). Hoping the Coopers will treat me well enough for the wknd Tahoe trips.
