Do I need to buy rim together with snow tires? What are the problems if I buy snow tires only?

I bought and installed snow tires last year, and put old tires, and they were used. In the spring, I bought new set of tires and snow tires have desmontado.Ahora winter comes again. I have the old snow tires mounted. I heard that the edge can not afford too many times for assembly and reassembly. Is this true? I buy tires to go with snow tires? What are the problems if you do not buy extra wheels? Thanks in advance.

    I didn’t buy extra rims for mine, the only annoying thing is that the fees to have them re-mounted each year probably add up to more than the cost of the rims. I haven’t had any trouble with mounting and remounting the tires on the rims, but I can’t say for sure that it wouldn’t happen after several years (I have only had my car for 3 years).

    Rims can take many tire mounts if those are done right, which may be a problem sometime. If you are changing tires then having cheap steel rims (OEM) or other may not be a bad idea. You are paying about $20 to remount the tires plus time, if you can pick up rims (used or other) for $40-60 then you are even in two seasons, and can change them back and forth at your own schedule. I would get a set of cheap rims, just for convenience.

    buying spare rims would eventually even out in cost against remounting labor every year,i have premounted rear snow tires for a truck i drive,this is much easier as i can do it myself if needed,cannot mount and dismount tires,takes special equipment.

    if you just buy the tires you,ll have to pay to have those changed on to your rims,and then in spring have them changed back,its better to go to a salvage yard and buy two other rims to fit your car,and have the snow tires mounted on them,that way there always ready when you need them,that’s what i did,and I’m ready for the winter ,if it ever gets here,good luck with it.

    your rims wont wear out! the reason for extra rims its more convienent,go to a junk yard get 2 extra rims mount your snow tires & put them on for winter in summer put your other tires back on & put your snow tires in the garage they will be ready for next winter allready mounted

    A cheap set of extra rims makes changing out the tires easier. I would do it.

    You don’t have to but I would recommend it. This is what I do on all of my vehicles.

    Separate rims for both sets of tires makes swapping each season much easier. It also saves wear and tear on the tire beads. Winter tires have thick beads to withstand multiple mounts and dismounts but non-winter tires don’t.

    Over the long haul the extra set of wheels might even be cheaper since you don’t have to pay to have the tires dismounted, remounted and balanced twice a year. With separate rims you can even swap them out yourself in your driveway or garage.

    I would recommend steel wheels if available for the winter tires. They are very inexpensive and more resistant to corrosion damage than alloys. If a steel wheel is not an option choose an alloy wheel that is inexpensive and simple in design (ie: relatively easy to clean). Road salt eats alloy wheel finishes alive. Tirerack.com is a great place to find steel or alloy wheels that meet these specs.
