Default Rims in winter?

I was interested in purchasing a set of Konig evolutions i believe they are off of a friend of mine but she isnt looking to sell them till august. I dont want to put them on and have to take them right off. So i was wondering if i get a decent set of snow tires, are these going to be okay in the winter? or should i stay away from that?

If they salt the roads in the winter your rims will corrode, in other words most people usually replace their summer rims with the basic black ones for winter. She is obviously waiting till winter rolls around to get rid of them since she can't use them then.

not necessarily, she doesnt drive her car in the winter, its a 05 mustang. Its not to good in the snow. i have stock tires no basic black ones to go to so i would revert back to my stock if need be.

well regardless if they use salt on the roads aluminium rims will corrode and probably get ruined in the winter. Most people just get winter rims around here where I live.
