Plus if you get a winter set of rims..you can change your tires your self without having to re-mount and re-balance every change of season. If you spend a few extra bucks now...you'll thank yourself later...just my opinion..
I'm no car expert, but the idea that remounting rubber to your rims once a year will cause warping sounds ridiculous. If you can drive like a maniac on them 3/4 of the year, then you can change the rubber on them once a year.

No hate here! Those are exceptionally nice winter rims.
Gives a man ideas, it does!

I bought a set of the heritage rims for mine and put the Pirelli Scorpion snow and ice tires on them earlier this week. I had a 45 minute drive home from work the next morning in a snowstorm and didn't spin or slide once, but did get to see lots of other cars smashed up on the way.

Did anyone bother getting the TPMS for their winters?
Tirerack says you can use the ones already installed on your winter ones? Should I bother or no? I really didn't think it was a big issue.
