For those with 17-inch summer tires, I'm interested in what your plans are for the upcoming winter and snow. From what I've heard here, leaving them on and driving (even in light snow) is pretty risky, so I'm planning on getting a set of all-seasons. I've heard that whenever you take-off or remount tires, there is a good chance of bubbling or some sort of damage to the tires. Can anyone comment on the chances of damaging the tires, as well as your plans for the winter?

I plan on buying some winter tires with a set of decent looking low-budget 17" (possibly used) just to kick around in the snow and slush and salt with. I don't want my stock allows to go throught that punishment. Oh and there always a chance of damage, it depends on the people who mount the tires. Go with a more professional shop. That can afford to give you new tires if the screw up yours..not to mention scratching up your rims..
