I take off my stock wheels and use some 16" steel ones from a matrix.

Only when it's snowy/salty, it's a lot of work.

Just keep them clean, all will be well

And check the air pressure regularly. If it snows a lot in your area I would wrap the stock wheels in snow tires. Since it doesn't snow here, I don't have to worry about that happywink

most people switch back to stock to prevent damage and such to their rims/tires...and also because sometimes their tires are not suitable for snow...
I'm not going to this year since I won't be driving much until I get my license, but next year my dad said I should.

I just don't drive my celica in the winter... Or rain... Sleat or anything but sunshine for that matter...

That works best..

He's not old enough to have it yet. Or something along those lines.
