    When I look on the Fastco site (they do a lot of steel wheels as well as their alloys), they don't have a steel in any size for this application. A quick look Tire Rack in the USA gives the same result, so it may be that a wheel in the correct size, offset, and hub bore doesn't exist in the 6-bolt fitment yet. You may have to put winters on your factory wheels, or go for a low cost 18" alloy wheel package.

    6 bolt wheels shouldn’t be hard to find.

    Found the Touren wheels I want at canadawheels for $550 for 4. Not bad for 18x8.

    I have had blizzaks on my Fusion for 3 years and they where awesome. Good grip and low noise. I have sailuns on my Jeep Grand Cherokee and they are crap. Havenít liked them since new. Little bit more noise but traction isnít that great.

    Well I definitely have to buy new winter tires as I just sold my 11-14 GT Brembo wheels with Blizzaks to a guy with a 2020 GT PP. the 19x9 and 255/40 tires were too wide and I wasn’t happy with the performance. Time for some 18s and narrower tires.

    What are your thoughts? Price includes taxes but installation is extra, which is fine as I’d have them installed elsewhere and when it gets colder. I sent them a message asking if the prices already include the rebate or if it’s the price + $60 then get the $60 back from the rebate.

    Thinking I might go 225/55/18. A little narrower and a little taller. If I’m doing 60kmh I’d be doing 61.4kmh with that size so not a huge difference. Much cheaper too.

    Oddly enough,opposite review on Sailuns here. This will be third winter with them on Kath's HHR. Price point tire that feel and drive more like a good all season (especially for a snow tire), are virtually silent and have done a top notch job in the snotty weather. Add to that, are wearing very well and to us they've been a home run.

    225/55R18 is definitely a good size for an S197 or S550 where you have to run 18s.
