I’m in Colorado and have a couple of options. Not sure what would be best though and just wanted to read what many others have done as this is my first sports car in general. I’d usually run tire changes for my other cars, for my wife’s though I have 22” and 20” summer/winter respectively. My 718 came with the 19” Boxster S wheels and the Yokohama ADVAN tires. Here’s my indecision:

1. Change to winter tires to be safe, though season is almost over. Switch back to summer tires for summer. Wear out summer performance tires and keep the 19” for winter and potentially track (maybe one to five times a year). Then purchase wheels more for street look like the Carrera S 20”.

2. Complete wheels and tires for winter setup. Keep current 19” for street use.

3. Something better as stated by one of you!

I used my Boxster S wheels for winter/ track wheels and got some OZ Laggeras for summer wheels. Best option for those of us that drive year round and have snow.

If you are going to drive in snow at all or in very cold temps (below 30F) for an extended period then you need snow tires. The Yokohamas (or any other performance tire) will be crap in those conditions.

ON my 718 CS I have a separate winter wheel set with dedicated winter tires. I put them on in December and will change back to the summer wheels and tires at the appropriate time (about a week from now looking at the forecast).

So which wheels are for which? OEM the summer ones?
