SRT Reps During Winter?

Well I'm about to get some WK Bilsteins, Eibachs, SRT reps. I'm just curious to see how many people keep their wheels on year round. I'm not sure if I want to wait for Spring or just keep them on for the Winter. I'm in Kansas and our Winters aren't crazy or anything but we do get snow. Thanks

Re: SRT Reps During Winter?

are you going chrome finish or no? i think if you got the satin/black/comp gray the weather wouldnt be an issue for them. just get yourself a nice all-season tire with some nice tread and call it a day.

being in md, and seeing how much the salt the hell out of the roads- i often talk myself out of reps. but im coming around to the idea.

Re: SRT Reps During Winter?

Yea I plan on getting the black ones. I for sure don't want rubber bands on these things so I might just get some good all-season and call it a day like you said.

Re: SRT Reps During Winter?

I have NEVER taken mine off. I live in KY...so we dont get a lot of snow either. Just seal them inside and out with a good paint sealant, wash them off if you do get salt on them and youll be fine.(dont use the harsh carwash soap either) Just spray off with water and wash them with whatever you use on your jeeps painted surfaces when you can.
