Default Ram R/T 22" in Canada winters

Are these wheels ok to run in our Canada winters? I just picked some up and just wondering if I should wait to put them on or just go ahead.

I saw a white Ram with these rims on it yesterday. That being said, if I had those badass rims, and I still had stock rims, I would save the badass rims for Summer. Salt might damage them longterm..

I would pick them up and run them 3 seasons. Trying to find a good winter tire in 22s is annoying AND expensive. A set of 20s, or even better 17s, will make you happier price-wise and give you more rubber.

Default My 20"s

I have the 20's from day one and wish I had never run them in winter. Also had new tires put on and when they balanced them they added the lead weights how then normally do the the edge. Never again would I allow this, rather use the stick ons. My clear coat is cracked and pealing and going to be a problem soon. I believe the magnesium doesn't like the lead. In any event I would recommend running plain ole black rims in the winter, where there is the possibility on salt on the roads.
