    Putting 16" rims and tires on Fusion, decided to run it this winter....sure as hell not interested in running 19" winter tires.

    Good luck with your winter tire search, sounds like you will have few options lol.

    Quick question: I want to get new winter tires for the truck. However I would like to get slightly beefier tires so is there a site I can use that would tell me what I can fit under the fenders without modification?

    any good Canadian online retailers for wheels and winter tires? Tire trends doesn't look too operational anymore and with the dollar I want to stay away from the US sites

    I ended up purchasing rims & tpms sensors from TireRack, and rubber locally from Costco. That's what worked out for me.

    One of my summers blew out on the 102 on saturday, so my winter tire plan has been pushed up. I've been patiently waiting for my supplier to get Blizzaks in stock but it looks like I will have to get my second choice now.
