Re: Why is it bad to have 17" or higher rims on during the winter?? (GoGTIGo)

How much snow do you get in St. Louis? And do they salt the roads? If they do then I woudn't reccomend that you keep your nice rims on during the winter since the salt will ruin them. if you do get plenty of snow then it wouldn't be a good idea to run with wide tires since you will have a tendancy to hydroplane. In the winter you want to run as narrow a tire as possible in order to cut through the snow to the tarmak below and get grip a wide tire will mean that you float on top of the snow and get less grip.
