Can I leave my rims on my car without wrecking them?? They are 17" 100 spokes, and they'll be sitting for about 4 months, over winter. Is it okay or should I take them off and put them in my basment. The car is sitting in my garage.

My buddy always jacks his truck up off the ground for winter and puts jackstands under the fame and lets it sit like that... Leaves wheels on. but he doesn't have wires.

Depends on the car, if it's an old school, take off the rims, put it on jackstands, better for the suspension(if it's stock) then it's a good opportunity to clean your rims nicely.

It all depends on your preference. Either way you should be fine, but just take em off and clean em

Should not have a problem, I would only take wheels off to clean or detail them. Leaving dirt and brake dust on the inside of the wheel is probly the worst. I've let sit my heavy 65 impala with hydralics on 13's for the past 4 winters and come spring wheels look good tires ride just as good. Just keep em clean and away from moisture. Know if it makes you feel better take em' off. Some tire shops will do it for you as long as you have stocks and purchased custom wheels with them. :)
