When do you think I should pull the chrome and summer rubber off and slap on the stock golds and winter tires?

How about giving me the winter tires cause mine aren't too hot!! What is salt gonna do to those wheels and tires though, besides make them less black....

I'd say wait until early-mid november or first snow, whichever comes first. (obviously at the first available chance. You should grab the 2 1/4 ton floor jack from my house if you don't have one )

Maybe I just plain forgot, but I never knew you had the Ghetto Golds too! I;'d also wait for the first snow. Keep it Bling Bling as long as you can
