I like the 5000 turbo wheels (5-spoke T44) for winter wheels on the 5X112 
pattern, and 5000 front drive 14's on the 4X108's. Neither is particularly 
pretty, but they both have a great feature. Since the front face is pretty 
flat, they con't fill with snow when you go trudging along through the deep 
stuff. The stock V8 aero's are also a pretty good wheel for this. Any of the 
"open" designs tend to fill up, and not evenly :( Leaves you with a bad 

 The other vehicle that they have is a Honda van,
