Get some spare rubber cheap and mount them on STEEL wheels. Get a couple decent used tires for front and snows for the back.
The steel wheels are heavier than the aluminum ones many people have these days. It will add a pretty good chunk of weight for all 4 wheels.
That reminds me!!!... Have I got just the thing!!! I just so happen to have, for sale, a set of four steel wheels for a Fiero that have snow tires mounted and ready to go! I had been meaning to ebay them, but would rather offer them here instead.
195/75/14 Mud and Snow rated on 5.5 inch wide wheels with the Fiero's 5x100mm bolt circle. I used them for like the second half of one season and then decided not to drive my Fiero in the snow anymore. In other words, they are almost new and both the tires and wheels are in VERY good condition. If you look closely at the pics, you can still see the rubber nubbies on the sidewalls and you can even still see the dye between the tread lugs!!
I'm not the HTML whiz, but I'll try linking to some pics... If this works right, you should be able to click on the thumbnails and get to a larger pic. Here goes:
I want $200 plus shipping for all four. I know that's cheap, but I would rather have the open real estate in the garage. Please someone buy these things before they go onto ebay and end up on a Citation or 6000......
You can PM me here, or send to email@example.com
Thanks (and sorry Ogre for hijacking your thread). I guess I should put something in the mall as well?
