I have not done the research myself, however I was told it's not a good idea to leave them in the cold. I put used tires on my old OE wheels , and stored new wheels and DR's in the basement. Went to salvage yard and got 4 used tires for $25

He's right I would switch them over to something crappy. What tire is it? Nt05r?

Super soft tires such as drag radials aren't designed to be in super cold or wet climates such as snow, it can over time damage the rubber making them less useful when you really went them (i.e. the drag strip).

If the car is just going to be sitting then get a cheap set of wheels and tires and bring the nice ones inside.

Drive it once a week min of 20 minutes to heat up tires. Not by a quick burnout but natural warming of rubber from driving. Been doing it for a long time and no problem. Fill tires with nitrogen.
