    Just wondering how many of you guys that have aftermarket rims and tires swap them out in the winter time? Or do you run them year round, even in the rain and snowy months? Just curious as I'm thinking about putting my stockers back on, until the sun returns. :rolleyes:

    I run a winter set on stock 16" steel rims, Firestone Winterforce studded snows. In the nicer weather, the Alloys & All Terrains. Not so much for the rims but better traction because we tow in the mountains quite a bit.

    The salt does a number on our trucks for sure :(

    If you still have the stock wheels & tires....I'd put 'em on for the winter.

    But you're probably better off selling the stock wheels & tires and buying some cheap ass steal wheels with some really good snow tires on 'em.

    I am putting my stockers back on this winter. The Kumho MTs aren't the greatest on lightly snowed-on roads and they are getting replaced in the spring anyway (almost 32k out of them). I am in Michigan too so I get to deal with enough snow too.

    I just had an offer of $850 for my stock rims and tires :eek:

    So yeah, I sold them! I'm going to get a set of black steelies and some tires that are good in the rain and snow. Maybe some Nitto Terras or something.

    Hell, if you can find some Sport Kings (made by BFG, Cavalier was one name attached to them), they are cheap and last forever. Just have them siped and you got yourself a great set of winter tires & wheels.
