Got new wheels should I keep old wheels for winter?

So I currently have Toyota 16" steel rims, I just purchased some slightly modified 17" Toyota alloy rims. Do you guys think it is worth the hassle to keep the 16" steels for winter tires? Or should I just sell them? Just curious on peoples opinions and reasons.

Considering you live in MN, that road salt will ruin your the finish on your new rims. Personally there is absolutely no way I would sell those steel wheels if I lived in that kind of winter environment. Plus a set of steel wheels will only get you about $100-$125 for the set, its just not worth it.

x3 on keeping them! Im keeping my gay looking wheels for summer. They are way too wide for my winter tires so i'll probably buy a pair of 32x11.5 or bigger for summer. Kinda miss the wide tires

keep and install dedicated snow tires. I mean, if there is such a thing as
winter in MN...

A nice Michelin LTX winter set... that thing will rule the streets

or install huge lug dedicated off-road tires. rule the dirt and rocks.
