Wanting a narrower wheel than stock 21’s for winter. Understand police !8’s have offset for Brembos. Do they accommodate the speedo settings and what purpose specific snow not all season speed rated tire do they use?
Tire Rack has a 21” Pirelli Scorpion snow with sound insulated liner option - any idea how wide or practical they are or other suggestions appreciated. Cost secondary.

You can go down to 18" and still clear the brakes, just need to get taller tires.

I haven't purchased an ST yet but have talked to the dealer about winter rims/tires as I'm going to price those into the deal. They indicated the Police Interceptor 18" steel rims will clear the ST Street Pack brakes, as you also confirm, because the PI uses oversized calipers, heavy duty brakes. The Pirelli Scorpion Winter 265/60 R18 114H XL might be a good tire option for those rims. I think the PI rim/wheel cap combo would be a great choice for a 'stealth' look in the winter.

Are we SURE that the 18"PI rims will fit the Street Pack brake calipers for sure?
Has anyone confirmed this...
