Planning to go extra wheels route.
Dealer quoted 16inch steel wheels. Went to tire shop for a comparison and they say no 16 inch available for Lincoln so I assume they use Fusion's wheels?
Hate the idea of 6 months with yuk looking steel so I might just hold off altogether as I still have my old Buick with snows on it.

Yeah, that was my original idea/plan but I figured the AWD might come in handy if I have to actually winter travel.
Use the Buick as a winter beater.
I decided on listening to the dealer where I bought the MKZ and had them mount Nokian Happa's on 16 inch steel rims.
Spent another 60 bucks for some plastic hub caps and I'm ready for winter.
The 'plastics' don't look too bad so I'm quite pleased the way it turned out.
With any luck I'll never find out how good the setup is in snow

Intriguing topic for me, as I just received four brand new 17" wheels for my 2010. I plan on fitting the old rims with Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2's come fall, for my winter set. I will move my Michelin Premier A/S's to the new wheels for my Spring-Fall set.
