RTX Berlin Wheels
RTX is a Canadian company based out of Montreal and specializes in wheels and wheel accessories. Our customer wanted a sportier looking 18" wheel for a nice exterior upgrade yet retain a close-to-factory appearance. These RTX Berlin wheels are styled after the E63 generation BMW M6 19" wheels and have a painted black barrel with machined silver face.
Because these wheels are designed specifically for BMW applications, it can reuse the factory lug bolts and is hubcentric to minimize vibration. These wheels also accept the factory center cap which further adds to the "OEM+" styling.
For the tires, our customer wanted to stick with all-seasons that he could leave on year round due to limited storage space. We picked our favourite all-season tire, the Continental DWS06 for this application. This is a sporty tire that's perfect for Vancouver driving conditions. The wet grip is exceptional and the treadwear is great. It's also designed for mild winter applications which is reasonable for the type of weather we get here in the Lower Mainland.
Those that require dedicated winter tires should look for a different tire as these are only M+S rated. They do not have the snowflake symbol for severe winter service and are not appropriate for driving in areas with heavy snowfall and ice.
