For-Sale-Post plug aside, Nokians are amazing. The nicest tires I personally run are studded Winterforces on my Impreza. I run Blizzaks on my Civic during the winter and they do not compare to those Winterforces.

(Before anyone plays the Impreza vs Civic card, I had these same Blizzaks on teh Impreza 2 years ago. Still day and night difference)

I went on Ebay and found a set of OEM Insight rims for just under $400. I also got an unexpected bonus: 4 RE92 Potenza's with 75%+ tread left on them. I had the RE92's taken off and put on some P175 65 14 Blizzak's.

Nokians - Best. I have mine mounted on a set of civic del sol rims I bought used (Same rim was an optional one to purchase with the insight). Where are you at?
