I am looking for 20' Standard color Urano's not machine polished. If anyone on the forum has it. Please PM me the details, along with the price.

I am looking to put on all Weather tires on them. and will use my 19 inch with Sports performance when desired.


Also correct me if i am wrong, the 20 inch Urano standard color are blackish in shade right??

Also if any one has 18 inch OEM wheels, that would be great as well... just PM me the price and details.

Would the 19 inch do better in snow or a 18 inch. Because if 18 inch do better i would get an 18 inch wheel with winter tires and be done with it.

18" better in the snow

I had the same dilemma when I was looking at the 2014 - but settled on the 2015 which comes standard with all season 19" not 18" summers

I am not intending to drive much here on LI from Thanksgiving until late March and will try the all seasons rather than use two sets of wheels/tires

I agree with DD. I will not drive the car from late November thru end of February unless it is clear, and above 50 degrees. I have all seasons and like them very much as is. No need for separate winters.

Too bad you are so far away from me, I have the base 18's because I intended to swap out for some aftermarket but may end up picking some OEM 19's up. Shipping both ways would be killer, which also has kept me from jumping on some other people's posts about their wheels.

Agree with DD, 18" will definitely be better in snow and depending on the winter tires you choose (Pirelli carving edge vs Sotto3 as an example). Carving edge are more aggressive and have positive reviews on this forum. Especially since you are in the New England snow belt.

Similar to Spsesq, I don't plan on driving my car in bad weather or when they have all that salt, magnesium suflate and fine ground gravel they put down for traction in December - February. But just in case temptation gets the best of me, even hiding under that blue Ghibli indoor cover, I bought the 20" sotto3's with another set of rims to have on the car.>:D In 20" there are limited selection, but in 18 and 19 you should be able to get a good deal on literally new "take-off" rims on ebay or other on this forum, (even with shipping).

Thanks Joe's and i think i will go with the 18 inch for Snow, and like you said no driving in bad weather and when that salt is out. But just in case if the weather is good and not much snow around.

Secondly for the 18 inch i am unable to find Carving edge. Only Sotto3 are available. I know carving edge is available for 19 but for 18 the size of the carving edge is off.

So i am getting a pair of 18 inch OEM STAGGERED RIMS, to use in Winter times. Does anyone have any idea about the TPMS i need to put in?

Also i currently have 19 inch wheels do i have to do something special for the 18 inch or it would fit in just like that.

Looking to get Sotto Zero3 tires for winter.

Fortunately, I left the snow years ago. Unfortunately, I can't be of any help with snow tires... >:D
