I run the BBS wheels for my snows; works great.  Up here in the northeast, the combination of salt and corrosive brake dust has led to some pitting of the polished lip, but I don't mind as they're snows...

I'm going to swap out the brake system on my car, and likely won't need the 15" with snows; any interest?

comment on whether the alloy wheels are up to the task of snow/ice and
related winter weather duty, or am I better off just keeping the steel
wheels, which are considerably heavier and not nearly as attractive, IMO?
Am I making a mistake?  FYI, I'm in Virginia, and we don't have the snowfall
that my northern/midwestern brethren and sisters have.  The hakka 1s are
probably overkill here but I picked 'em up in great shape and I ran them
this winter from Jan-Feb.
