Awesome. Are the k-summits the equivalent of modern day chains?

Looks good! Yeah are those k-summits like snow chains? They look quite smart I must admit!

I'm planning on getting the same tires but also a set of wheels so that I can do that swapping back and forth between summer and winter tires myself. I love the OEM wheels. Any people out there have reasonably priced, nice looking suggestions for 17" wheels for winter tires. Just curious to know what people like. I'm hoping I'll be inspired by someone else's performance.
