Hey all. So, I have OEM 17" rims on my 2014. They are wrapped with Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor rubber. There is a Mountain & Snowflake symbol on the tire. So I am going to assume that these are Winter tires.

My questions are these:
Should I ONLY run these in the Winter? IE will they prematurely wear if I run them in the Summer? Or are they tough enough to run year round? (If that is even possible)

And if I do not run them in the Summer, I need a decent replacement tire. I will not be doing much, if any, off road running... So decent pavement performance would be paramount... However, I'd love it if it LOOKED like I did offroading, so an aggressive look from side on would be really cool.
And I see tires listed as P and LT... Should I only be looking at LT tires?

And if I look for new rims as well, are there specific stats or types of rims I should be looking at? Machined, painted, alloy, forged, etc etc?
I just got an email from TireRack who suggested these rims:

(I really an a n00b when it comes to this stuff, unfortunately... and I am looking to you experts for some guidance! LOL)
