I usually put my winters on in the first week of December. I've not run into snow or ice or particularly slippery conditions before then.

I just picked up a set of used winter tires with steelies not too long ago. I'm selling this set of right after winter because I'm switching cars next year. I'm wondering if I should get them re-balanced or don't even bother with it since I'm only using them for one winter.

on a side note, how do you guys maintain the steelies for winter? i heard people wax them to give them added protection. is this true?
as long as you make sure you spray off salt residue from the roads you should be ok....

Anyone? Is it worth it for one winter?

Thanks in advance

If they're already balanced just throw em on. If they wobble they get them balanced. Bingo Bango I solved your problem.

Do you plan on driving long distances? For me I would do it for the $10/tire that Speed Syndicate charges.

I was out driving today and I noticed my car being a little twitchy... being on summers, the heavy rain and the temperature nearing 9c, I'm not surprised.

Time is soon!

There was one year I bought a 90's Land Rover Discovery for $5k and sold it in the spring. In the end, it cost me nearly nothing. I was able to sell it for the same price I bought it for and I used it for 6 months.

you might as well put them on now if you are purcashing them this year due to the fact that shops will all be busy when all the last minute people decide to get tires on the first day it snows... if you have them stored.. it can wait..
