I've been swapping wheels/tires since the mid-90's. For the past 5 years I have been able to mount & balance my own assemblies so I'm a bit spoiled. This will be the first year of not having a separate set of wheels/tires for winter. I took the factory tires off my car at 850 miles so that's the plan unless I find a smoking deal on snows...soon. The PSS tires will not work under 45F. Don't forget to clean the hub-face and the wheel center-bore for good centering!
