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.
