Re: Factory Vibe aluminum 17" wheel cap replacements?

There are usually a lot of used center caps on eBay.

I've seen 09-10 Vibe owners use 03-08 Vibe center caps, so, apparently those are a perfect fit.

Also, check car-part.com.

Re: Winter Tires = Different Vehicle

I couldn't agree more about having two sets of wheels and tires! We have had 16" steel winter wheels for both our 2009 GTs since the first winter we had them (2009-2010). We ran Kelly Explorer all season tires (205/55/16) up until this winter. I figured it was time for new tires since the Explorers ...

Re: Is Stabilitrak a Must Have For Driving in Snow?

FWIW, traction control and side air bags are standard on ALL 09-10 Vibes.

I will be getting Blizzak WS80s for both our Vibes before this winter hits. We've been fine the past 9 winters with all season tires, but we're due for new tires so I figured I'd give the Blizzaks a go this time around.
