The benefit of rims is this:
- if you don't have rims, then to changeover from winter tires to all season tires is about $60+ per season (2 seasons in a year).
- if you have rims, then the changeover from winter tires to all season tires is only $25 per season (even cheaper if you do it yourself)
- so savings of at least $70 a year. If you intend to keep your car for over 4 years, the rims will pay for themselves (based on 16" steel rims pricing)
Also, the benefit of the tires not getting "accidentally" damaged going on and off every season.
