    I want to get some new rims, my question concerns the rims in the wintertime. Do all rims have to be taken off in the wintertime? What are some good all year rims, if there is such a thing. I apologize if these sound like dumb questions. thanks.

    rims usually arent a problem in the summer or winter.. itz the tires.. usually getting a bigger size rim means smaller tires, which are usually geared for street performance and dont give good handling in snow or rain.

    Yeah it's mostly about traction. I plan on putting the stockers back on mine when the first snow hits. I get good traction during the rain with my Toyo's but boy can I brake em loose once and a while!
