I don't like black wheels, and I LIKE whitewall tires. It is a shame that interest in whitewalls has gone away. I think they look great on some cars. I can understand that they don't work with today's lower profile tires, though.
My second set are off back order and go on a different car next week. I'm curious to see how much different these 45 series will be against the Outback's conservative 70 series. Performance aside, I expect the same amazing winter performance.
The CrossClimate2 are simply amazing.
I had white wheels on a white Chrysler Sebring convertible with a white top in the late 1990s. That was a trendy look that didn't last long. Volkswagen did it on their cabriolets, and I think a few other manufacturers may have done it, too.These came stock on my mustang
Yes, but noticeably better than most all all season tires. As an example we have Conti with DWS and still in S (snow) tread depth and while good, no way in same league as CrossClimate2.I'm running cross climate2 right now on the wife's car. Not bad, but they are noticeably worse on hard cold stuff, ice or bare road, than the blizzaks I had on it last year. But, I'm not autocrossing, and it's nice to not have to swap wheels anymore.
No complaints in the summer.
