I take mine off for winter, If your state doesn't use salt on the roads then really you'll be fine as long as you keep them clean, but here the salt would just eat them away.

I live in SALT lake city lol I take off my rims in the winter for 2 reasons. A: so the rims stay nice and don't get corroded. And B: I have summer performance tires on my 18's and i have Blizzak snow tires on my stockers
