Also, I am new to wheel buying. What was the exact make and model number of those sweet wheels you sourced and do they come with the trick little M sport insignia or is this a sticker?

Let it snow!!
Well they look nice off the car anyway, haven't put them on yet (waiting until Wednesday judging by the forecast). Washed them, put on a preventative wax coat, put on the tire tote dealies and they are in a pile in the basement for now. I'll gladly post up a couple photos midweek...sorry if I'm a little slow to respond as we just adopted a second dog from a shelter so I have my hands full lol.

Here is a link to the wheelset:

The little M sport insignia on the wheels is just a little sticker but the wheel has an indentation for it so it's not like you just slap it on somewhere. The wheels would look fine without the stickers, too. I don't like the factory Sportline center caps that come with the wheels - cheap and ugly imho but again, winter wheels...purely cosmetic.

I'll probably hold off on any real review of the PA4s until they have a few hundred miles on them and we get some of the white stuff. Hopefully not anytime soon.
