thanks for the info. I am also looking for rims to put on. It would be much easier to put on beater rims/tires in the winter then putting new tires on stock rims every winter. I also have to investigate what will fit. let me know if you find anything good.

I'd really like to find steelies that would fit or a set of rims that have a full inner section and not spokes. I've ran my 5 spokes in the winter for a bit before and it really sucks when snow/ice accumulates on the rims and you get on the thruway. Feels like the car is going to vibrate itself apart. Had to pull over and knock the snow/ice off.

You forgot about Ohio =P

Ya, I want Firestone Winterforce. I've used them on my Civic for the last 7 years and I love them. But I need to figure out if I can put smaller rims on the Fiesta and find a tire size that will work that they come in. They don't come in the stock size or anything close to it.

I've only been able to find a couple different tires that will fit the ST so far because of the odd tire size. Firestone and Bridgestone have a few options

These are good on snow/ice and are from Bridgestone http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Blizzak+WS60&partnum=04R7BZWS60XL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes

Waterbury, CT I've got some 16x7's I plan to wrap with some winter tires. Got Nokians to be mounted on them. Got to have good snows here as we have a lot of hills in town.

Westwood, NJ here (NE corner, almost at the NYS border)

Do what I did on my current car - get winter tires on your stock rims. That way, you're forcing yourself to get a lighter set of aftermarket rims in the spring. :D

When everyone gets their ST's, we will have to form a little group for the Northeast and have meets!
I agree! Lets do it next spring or summer.... Maybe Atlantic city would be a nice spot? Kind of in the middle and there is a lot to do (drink/gamble lol)
