Default When should I put the rims on?

I picked up some very nice 17" chrome rims from FireDevil, and I am not sure when it would be to early to slap them on the '93. Yeah... I am a little anxious I want to give the '93 a wash and wax and also throw on the rims this weekend, but I am not sure if it is too early.

2nd or 3rd weekend of April. Trust me, I've always jumped the gun when it came to putting on the summer chrome/rubber and then, BAM!, it snows within the week.
Or wait till the first good rain to clean off the roads. They like to use a lot of sand where I live.

I'd wait until the end of the month. Then put a good coat of wax on them just in case.
