I've found a Genuine OEM set of GMC Terrain 18" wheels on ebay for almost nothing and i've managed to find compatible tire size as i have the 19" wheels and that the wheels final ratio is not the same as the 17" and 18".


So i purchased, for winter, a set of Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 size 235/60/R18 that are 99.9% the same global size as 19" tires. I'm impatient to try the winter ability of the Terrain's AWD system :)

Just wanted to share for everyone that have to face the glacial winter here in canada or in the north of the usa.

Hope this helped you out.

If not... just pass your way you doesnt have to answer :)

Take it from me... the AWD system is great - you'll love it.

There... now go back to enjoying your summer. Besides, you aren't in a rush to expose your nice vehicle to all that salt and cold temperatures, are you?

I second that.
No worries this past winter on the stock Hankook tires.

Where are you from gearhead ? If you passed the winter with all season tires you are certainly not in quebec. here we have a law that we must have winter tires...

SW Ontario, about as far south as you can go before you hit Detroit.
We had 4 or 5 major snowfalls (over 25cm) plus we took the Terrain skiing where our chalet was 3/4 of the way up the mountain (Crystal Mountain in Michigan).
No probs getting up, down or around the mountain's and resorts snow covered roads.
Other vehicles (mainly my Sister-in-Law) were sliding backwards down the hill as I watched from 75 metres away!

Read about our trip if you like:
