Certainly checked into this when choosing a Cruze, tires do wear out and have to be replaced. For those 18" rims, the same tire runs $370.00 higher than the 17" and really how much is gained? For me, winter driving is key, and that little Cruze compared to my DeVille had even larger tires.

I also like those five spoke wheels, a lot easier to keep clean, but then I am lazy and this is just me.

What really concerns me most about the Cruze is that low ground clearance, especially during a blizzard. Already canceled a couple of trips because of that. An 80 mile round trip that normally can take 90 minutes, already was extended to five long tense hours.

Nice Cruze.

Do you still have the LS rims? If so, I would throw those on for the wintertime.

I will purchase more tires when the time comes. I already considered this when I made the switch. I have New tire money in hand when time comes. I have another vehicle to drive if streets are that bad.

Thank you and yes I have the LS rims and tires still. I am going to switch them out but have ben stalling since nothing major with weather(snow) has happened in my area. Maybe another week or so I will switch them. :)
