You should be fine either way. At the worst..you might get some snow buildup and cause an off balance until it melts. That'll happen in any car though.

I do worry about my car. This is my new baby, and soon to be my ONLY baby. I can't risk her getting hurt. :P

So if anyone has 16" Bonne rims they'd let go for cheap let me know. I have a post in the Wanted section FWIW.

I solved the problem for me. When it snows I use the 91 Sonoma.

Ask anyone who was on the Titanic that question.

I'm not really going anywhere with this.

Just to prepare you, the 00+* are a lot more sensitive to vibration, and just a little bit of snow/ice buildup on the rims can cause a lot of vibration - mostly above 45-50 or so. It will likely surprise you the first time it happens.
