Default OK to switch to winter tires on stock sti rims?

When I bought my sti I realized that I can't use the stock tires in the winter so the dealer also sold me winter tires. Will it be ok to switch to the winter tires on the stock rims then in the spring put the summer tires back on the stock rims?

Yes you can, but I would buy some cheap wheels and mount the winter tires on them.

You can, but it would be more cost-effective in the long run (and less hassle) to just buy a set of cheap rims for your winter tires.
