I wouldn't no...

Powdercoating / paint will survive Winters no problem, if they were chrome on the other hand yes. I had chrome and got them powdercoated (now painted but still) for that exact reason, to save swapping wheels. :thumbsup:

I do drive more carefully on icy/snowy roads just incase I slide into the kerb whilst having fun tho! :D

No way in hell would I leave them on...push it until they salt the roads, then yank them off, clean and wax them and put them aside until spring.

The salt here destroys everything...and I can't imagine it's much different where you are.
