...was talking to the folks at 'national tire' about wheels for the kid's car, alloy rims to be precise, and he asked if these were for year round. Yes they were. He frowned on that deal and said winters will beat the hell out of alloy rims.
... I have 'pro-comp 7069's' on the 'rat patrol' and planned on hitting the manual car wash once every couple of weeks to clean off all the salt and what not.
...my question to the 'bretheren' in the snow belt is : what's your experience (long and short term) with this issue and alloy wheels?
