I am running steel 15 inch rims with Michelin Ice 2 on my Sport. Not much snow yet this year for Boston (1.5 inches) (last year we were at 40 at this time). No complaints from me!!!

Mine has had a bit of trouble starting on the ultra cold days, but nothing that has me worried. The dealership actually told me about that when I bought it. I've used the block heater and it works very well.

I think it's standard on all Canadian spec cars. The cord sits in front of the battery.

I have never experienced -37. That's celsius? That's still colder than I have ever felt. I imagine many cars may take a couple of tries.

It has already neen 15 F here in NY and car starts and runs fine. Rarely gets any colder than that, so I should be OK.

That's crazy. This part of Canada is about 5C or 30 something F.
