Since my car will be arriving in October, should I just swap out to my 17" stockies with all weather tires before I ship it, and then go back to 19" in the spring?

I'm sorry...I'm from Hawaii. Having to deal with seasonal changes is foreign to me.

Yes, I know, I could look this up, but I want real world opinions.

Thanks in advance!
I usually change the weekend of Thanksgiving and leave the Winter tires on until Easter. I think you should go with winter instead of all seasons.
