I have 161s and I think they look great. They are, however, not "light" alloys as the brochure claims. They are quite heavy, esp with performance tires.

Yokohama W.Drive?

Anyone used the Yokohama W.Drive winter tire? How does it compare to other "performance" winter tires such as the dunlop wintersport 3D, blizzak lm60, pilot alpin, etc?
