What would you do!?

So I recently put 315/70/17 duratracs on dick cepek dc 2 wheels..

I'm worried about Wisconsin winter salt damage to the wheels. Should I just keep them on and risk it. Or buy cheap steelies... and switch them off... I'm at a loss of what to do. Never thought about it till my service guy at my dealership mentioned it.

They should be fine. Try Dick Cepek's website for care/maintenance recommendations.

An off-road wheel cant handle Wisconsin winters? They might want to edit their description...

The Dick Cepek DC-2 Features a Gloss Black and Machined Finish with A Tough Layer of UV Clear Coat Protection for Superior Durability and Ease of Care, Even in Harshest of Climates. The DC-2 is a Super Strong, Aluminum Wheel Built Especially for Today's Trucks, SUV's and 4X4's.

Where are the stock wheels? Use them for winter use. Keep an eye on the For Sale section, cheap tire/wheel combos appear often.
