    Let me know how the Switch Rims go ... I'm basically looking at the same kit for my car and plus 1 on which TPMS you ordered.

    Hopefully ordering the tires/rims doesn't take too long. I'm travelling for a few weeks and can't be home to receive the rims from a web order.

    Actually, if you look closely it's also branded as a Hyundai Mobis box :), but it's all good - they'll work ... :thumbup:

    Bill of Materials thus far, using the Fast Switch:

    Genuine OEM 2017-2018 KIA Stinger TPMS Sensor Valve 52933J5000 QTY = 4 8809588980023 | eBay

    Black SKU: F212-1880-65BT+35C671 (ETA of Sept. 14th to FastWheels, then to vendors)
    Titanium SKU: F212-1880-65TN+35C671 (in stock at FastWheels)

    Michelin X-ICE 3 225/45R18 x 4

    Probably going to order from 1010tires.com or canadawheels.ca ... both are within $20 of each other after tax/shipping/stewardship fees.

    ($1737.55 + tax) + 118 for the TPMS = $2100 all in, just need an installer.

    Local tire place (oakville) that sells the Fast Wheels quotes $2,207.12 all in (no tpms) for the same.

    I just wish that TireRack.com had this specific line, as there is 4.5% ebates on them which would be another almost $80 back plus the mail in rebate.

    Early snow in Canada has turned into a white out. The Evil One has disappeared. :D ;)

    lol, in my colour scheme it looks just fine ... I mixed up using white vs none in the editor I think.

    Finally settled on the Fast Switch in Satin black. I don’t LOVE the wheel but should be good for winter. Hubcentric is definitely a bonus. Now for some rubber...

    I decided to not go with Costco and instead to shop locally with RNJ TIRE in Ajax.
    After some checking I ordered a set of Nexen WinGuard Sport 2.
    They have a speed rating of V - perfect.
    What is even better is they charged me $700.00 for tires, mounting, balancing and installation of the TPMS sensors.
    I am thrilled with that price.

    RJN' s service even extended to putting one rim on just to satisfy my curiosity whether or not these Fsst Switch rims accommodate the Brembo brakes. Answer is yes they do.
    Please see photos attached. I hope they are of interest to prospective Switch rim purchasers.
    I will probably get a call tomorrow that they are all mounted and ready for pick-up.
    I will pick them up.
    It is too early to put them on the car. At least I am ready with the rims and tires.
    It seems an easy task to switch winter and summer. I am considering buying a torque wrench, a garage car jack and a light socket to fit.
    Anything else that I should consider before venturing down this road?
    Your feedback is appreciated.

    The correct tireshop name is here:

    If you in the area, pop in and have a chat. They are very knowledgeable and friendly.

    If you don't have an air compressor, that and a 1/2 inch impact make short work of removing and installing lug nuts (but not tightening - always use a torque wrench for that). A compressor is certainly a handy addition for other things as well.

    If you're keeping the wheels/tires at home, a wall mounted tire rack is a great place to keep them up and out of the way. And you might want to look at the jacking points on your car - it's not quite the same as jacking an old full frame car. You can make a nice jacking adapter pad with a hockey puck and a little carving.

    Just bought the RTX ENVY's from PMC Tire for $834 tax in, ordered the TPMS from Korea for $122 tax in on Amazon and then saw someone got it for $100. Costco has the best price on the Michelin X Ice tires, but they aren't on sale. I'll wait and keep checking until the TPMS are here, but I'm not expecting a sale now. Costco is good for the installation and service and I'll do my own changes here. Thanks for the info Steve! It definitely saved me a couple hundred and got me nicer rims than Costco had on offer.
