Didn't quite see this discussion so far... does anybody have experience driving the Trim levels with the 3 different wheel/tire sizes? I'm looking to buy snow tires, and it's cheaper to get the smaller tires. I'll buy rims and tires so they're easy to change. I just want to know how the handling changes, and is the drive more or less stiff with the 16 inch tires.

I know winter tires will change the performance more than anything else.

Thanks for any experiences you can share.

You will need to drop from 18" to 16"x 6 1/2" or 7 There has been lots of discussion over winter wheels but ultimately it is your choice and people have firm favourites of make and width and obviously more depth to give flex needed for winter grip.

A useful link. Thank you for sharing it!

I'll go for the 16" or 15" on my soul... it's cheaper and it seems it will absorb the bumps a little better too.

If you go with 16s then go with 215 or 225 60 16s or a max of 235 60 16s as I have. Rides really nice.
