Tips about Winter Wheels

  • Buying a second set of wheels just for your winter tires cost more upfront, but can mean quicker and cheaper appointments to get them put on your vehicle.
  • If you’re a bit handy and have some time, with your winter tires already on rims, you can swap them over yourself.
  • Steel wheels are great for standing up to the salt and sand on our roads, but you don’t have to sacrifice nice rims in the wintertime. Check out winter-rated aluminum options available for our climate.
  • Always buy tires in matching sets of four. Mismatched sets will decrease the performance and life of your tires.
