Hi..new member here.. car forums are always great with great people that know what they talking about.
I am wanting to find some winter tires and wheels for my Equinox.. LTZ. tires are 225/55/18. Is there other mfgs wheels that will fit ? I have done a lot of searching and cant find Chev wheels or other mfg in this size.
Am thinking it is not very popluar...

Those wheel specs are identical to my 2013 2 LT 1SC (just a notch below LTZ). My tire size is 235/55/18.

I have 4 aftermarket aluminum winter wheels I am no longer using. They strongly resemble the stock wheels that I see on a lot of 2013-2017 Nox. They aren't perfect but are pretty decent. I attached a pic from when I bought them in 2016 and they don't look much different after 5 more winters.

Thing is, I am in Ontario Canada. I will be traveling to PA Nov 8 when the border opens and then possibly to Florida to see my sister. No idea where you are but if interested and geographically it makes sense, drop me a note. I'll take some pics and email if interested. Anyone else interested, same deal.

I bought these wheels/tires from a guy who used them on their 2014 Nox. The tires on these wheels are shot. My summer and winter tires were both worn and with 330,000 km did not want to invest in 8 new tires. I decided to try Michelin Cross Climates this year and had them mounted on my stock chrome wheels. I am certain they will get me through at least one winter as they are snow tire rated. My only concern is how they do on ice. If they suck, I'll just stay home LOL.

I don't want to get involved removing the tires and shipping them. I would throw them in the car as is and drop them somewhere for a reasonable price - or sell them locally. They come with chrome nuts and wheel locks. Oh yeah, they also come with TPS sensors and all 4 worked perfect when removed in July.

The Michelin X-Ice that are on these wheels were awesome and wore like iron. I bought them with about 70% tread and used them 5 winters and still had to run them until July this year to use up the last bit of tread. As you can surmise from my high KMs, I drive a lot and cannot believe how long they lasted. Even with minimal tread last winter I had no issues getting around. You could do a lot worse.

Try checking marketplace on Facebook. People are always selling lightly used winter tires already on the rims. You just have to find something that will work size wise for you
