I still have my factory OE wheel/tire set up stored away until Fall, I'm undecided if:

1) I will run the factory originals as my winter setup,
2) sell the original wheels and tires (<1k miles), and run with what is on the vehicle now as my year round set-up?
3) put a set of "Blizzaks" on the original wheels for winter

I have always kept my factory wheels and run them in the winter. You could powdercoat them to give your Traverse a different winter look.

In MD I've never bought dedicated winter tires, I'd like to but the budget has never allowed for it. If yours does, I'd look that route.

Cintocrunch,

On my commuter car - a Chevy Volt, I run Blizzaks on plan steel wheels for the winter.
Makes a big difference on that small light vehicle.

With the larger AWD Traverse with ground clearance - the difference may not be as great?

From your signature file above:
Some nice rides you have there - I'm jealous ;-)

I was very impressed with how the Traverse performed in its first winter with me... I much prefer the heavier steering to the Pilot's very light steering that makes you feel like you never have traction.

The only thing I'd say is any all season on any AWD system will NEVER be as good as snow tires, so you will probably feel like it's awful.

Not bad great job. This is my 2014 Traverse w/ custom KMC 20” wheels. I had American Tire called KMC. they said they wouldn’t fit my Traverse because of wheel setup. I asked the guy if you put my Traverse offset into your wheel machine is it possible to make these wheels. Yes sir it is. Me: Stamp them out and I don’t five a &#x1f400; ass about the price. When will the be here&#x1f923;&#x1f602;&#x1f44d;&#x1f3ff;

Looks great. Did you Plasti-Dip the bow ties or just buy new ones?

Thanks!

I bought new black bow-ties this time around
(however 2.5 years ago I did Plastidip a set on my other Chevy and they are still holding up very well)
