My 2006 Subaru Forester has 16-inch tires, 215/60 R 16 to be specific. My wife just bought a Mazda3 iTouring, and it has 17-inchers. I'm jealous  Smile

Nissan Titank: Round rims with Black tires.

BMW 330i: Round rims with Black tires.

Tires and rims are over-rated and overpriced. Thanks to all the people that place so much bling emphasis on these components and have driven costs up and made more profits for the manufacturers of these simple items...

Congrats! I've got fabulous bargain-corner Italian studded winter tires of a rather well-know "Stunner" brand. Were it not for my excellent driving skills I'd have wrecked the car a dozen times already.
