ok so i am about to get my car ready for winter. i got a quote for steelies and rubber (michelin X-ice) 876.58 CAD mounted balanced the whole sha-bang-a-bang. the steelies come in at 200$ so should i spend the 200 on steelies or just put the swirlies thrue winter. mine are in near perfect condition verry verry few paint chips. i'm just looking at opinions is it worth the 200 dollars to keep the swirlies out of harms way.

It depends on if you want to keep them nice or not. The teardrops are getting harder and harder to source, so I imagine that they will continue to keep going up in price.

I don't wanna run my GSR rims in the winter on my fiances Civic, so we went to the salvage yard looking for steelies (steelies would have been cheaper) but ended up getting some 86-89 Accord rims (14" aluminum alloy, 4x100 bolt pattern, came with crappy tires & center caps for under $90. Repainted them up REAL quick and they look pretty sweet, cool looking old school Honda rims for the winter! So now all i need to do is find some decent tires and mount them. I would NEVER spend $200 on plain steelies.

you can get a set of steelies with tires at a junkyard for $25 each. or you can find someone with a honda that bought rims and buy there steelies.. i just sold a set of 14" steelies with tires for 75 bucks.

x2... Around here you could probably (haven't checked the prices recently) get a set of 14" stealies from salvage for under $50. I immagine most of that price is going to come from them removing the old tires.

good god! $200 for steelies? You can buy a set of stock crx si wheels for that or get steelies at a junkyard for cheap. Back when I bought my si wheels a few years back they were selling some beat up crx si wheels with tires for $50 for the set.
