Just curious, what's everyone doing to get their iM winter ready?

I live in south Fla, so there isn't too much winter prep here

16"s do wonders for road compliance. Wonder how much the stock wheels weigh considering how lighter the car feels.

Enkei M52 hyper black. Had I known they were this silver I would've gone "matte" (more satin than matte) black. Who knows, maybe for the summer wheels?

Looks like a nice winter set-up ^_^ and yeah, Enkei's Hyper 'Black' is kind of misleading, lol. Looks nice, though.

Not sure if my winter tire package will be installed on the iM when I pick it up tomorrow/the day after but I'm pretty sure it's a Michelin on black 16" steelie set-up.
