I used these on my Audi TTS as I drove it through the winter, I think they are an excellent choice. Not as sticky in the ice as a top-end Blizzak but a real good balance of performance in winter dry weather while not bad at all in ice/snow. Since I was driving a Quatto it's hard to say how it would be with a RWD monster like a Boss - good luck with her in the snow !

they look good for the purpose of driving in low temps with fair weather (dry or rain), but not in mega snow type ( then again why would we drive in snow^^). I may join you next year getting a set of those, as its eating me alive to see my Boss sleeping for the next X months... :)

well mine also hasnt seen rain or snow, but in "good weather cold days " I would like to be able to ride it, and since its below 40 the stock tires wont do it ( or dangerously). so those seem like a good idea :)

If you don't require race weight wheels then go with the ones from FRPP. Not a bad deal for $250 each and you keep the same design as stock (just black vs. red).

Some guys have also found 3'rd party wheels they like also, check the threads.

I like them!...........I'm a shiny wheel guy anyway.................I wish my wheels now look like the ones that came on my 2008 GT/CS.

Not a fan of General tire co, Had them on 3 different Fords from the factory and my dad had them on his 76 elcamino..........nothing but problems.
