Living on a substantial hill in snow country, I managed last year on the bridgestones without too much trouble (4Motion SE). When the weather got really bad we took the wife's Jetta with Blizzaks. I figured it was time to get some winter treads this year. Between the three below.

Please vote on the one's you'd go with. And yes, my Taos is white. Thank you!

Option 1. Enkei's Middle weight between the two below.

Option 2. Borbet's identical to those on my wife's Jetta in winter

Option 3. And some really light Moda's which have a bad review for being soft and not too strong....

Winter wheels will just get dirty and covered in crap anyway, hence my vote for the Borbets which will be easy to clean and still look decent.
For me though, it's 16" steel wheels all the way!

Your steelies and center caps look great! Really like the Cornflower Blue! My step mother liked ours so much and was considering one until she saw the Cornflower Blue. Liked it so much, she picked one up. SE with the black wheel package.

I considered steelies. I really like the Borbet's as well for the same reason. I think there's enough room between the spokes on both that it won't be too bad.
