Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I bought these after researching ratings (love the color block quick comparison graphs) to maximize the luxury part of the older 1997 sport/luxury Lexus SC 300 which came with some half worn Blizzaks.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I searched for a tire that had better Ride, Noise, & Tread-wear, as rated by the customers. I purchased this set because I needed 20 tires to go with the Helo Chrome wheels. I preferred the OEM Tesla 19 wheel Vs the OEM 21 higher performance/lower profile tire because of the Wear factor and Road Noise. I also do not believe there is any advantage to low...  Read More

Many drivers seek plain black steel wheels (also called steel rims) for winter use due to their low cost and durability.

Bling on a Budget: 19x9.5 Chrome Sport Edition ST5 Marked Down to $79 for Your S6

One vehicle that really stood out to me at the Detroit Auto Show was an ibis white Audi with traditional chrome wheels. It's hard to find the right finish for a white car.

I installed these tires on my 1965 289 Mustang along with a new set of American Racing Torq Thrust chrome wheels.
