Moto Metal Wheels in Minnesota Winters? Will they rust?

Sup Ya'll? I'm about to purchase Moto Metal 957s. The polished and black set. They are sweeettt!

I live in Minnesota where we have very harsh and cold winters. They do a great job of keeping roads clear but use a lot of salt.

Should I worry about the wheels rusting?

Should I keep my factory wheels? They haven't rusted and I've been through 4 winters.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Corrosion will be an issue for any wheels. Just keep your new wheels scar-free and clean and you'll probably be OK ...

Would you leave the wheels on during winter months? and keep them clean?

Keep them clean - definitely! ...

Swapping them out for beater rims during the high-salt season would help.
