Using the stock steel rims for winter tires & getting new rims for the stock tires

Hi!

I am thinking about getting winter tires for the first time.

I am wondering if I can use my stock 16" steel rims for them instead of buying new steel rims for the winter tires.

If I can, that means I can get new rims for my 16" standard tires, maybe something nice-looking. But, they would have to be compatible with the standard all season tires I have.

Just wondering if its possible. I know next to nothing about wheels and tires. I drive a 2014 1LT if that helps.

Thanks!

Will work out just fine…..many are using the 16" steelies for their winter tires……keeps the alloys flawless for spring install.

Awesome thanks!

What would be a good 16" wheel that would be compatible with both the car and the standard 16" all season tire?

Thanks!

I bought some tire rack "Sport Edition" wheels for my winter tires (kept the eco wheels with the summer ones) I really like them, they look very good, have lasted 4 winters with no blemishes, no problems with balancing, and were about $80 each. they are heavier than the stock eco rims, so milage does go down (winter tires are also a factor in my case).
Obviously there are other options depending on your price range, but these are economy cars after all...so i wanted to speak of these in particular.
