Why do you want to make your tires smaller?

Cool that you are doing those other mods though. I am interested to see how it goes for you.

Welcome!

For winter, it helps to cut through the snow and more.

Plus it seems like he had a set laying around. Guessing the OP came from an Acura RSX?

No, got those rims used from my friend to run snow tire. The iM used as additional car to my other toyota (venza v6 awd).
I like how it drive, no problem in snow whatsoever. Lots of cool feature for a little car.

How do you like you iM in winter conditions so far? How long does it take to heat up?


A bit cool tonight ;)

Just start and drive, no warm up, blower start about 5 min of local driving, but I can't feel any heat until 8-10 min of driving.

Oh hey, good to see another local. I'm in Gatineau.

The blower situation is provided you leave it on auto. Auto will prioritize heat build up of the engine rather than extracting the heat in the cabin. I find it warms up faster than my Astra with a same-sized engine and a smaller cabin.

Auto needs to be overridden at times due to condensation build up in my case.

That's not too bad then. Typically that's what i experienced in most of my vehicles. You have to let it run for a bit, 5ish minutes an then start driving to let heat built up. Some people let their cars run for 20minute or longer till its really warm and start going... that's too much for me.
