Default Question about wheel

Hi,
I live in the north. Every year I have to change tires in the spring
and autumn for my old Camry (90'). This year I want to buy 4 extra
steel wheels for the winter tires. BTW, I have the torque wrench. How
about my idea? I ask this question because most people change tires at
garage. I am not sure about my thoughts.


Thanks in advance

its a great idea. if you have the snows on their own wheels, then you can
change tires yourself. Also you don't ruin your summer wheels in the salt.
The downside is you have to spend money and buy wheels

I bet you could recover the cost of buying cheap/used steel rims in
three years of changing tires. If you figure mounting and dismounting
tire eachtime will cost around $40 for all four. I got to imaging you
can pickup steel rims for less than $120 for all four somewhere.
