Wisconsin Transfering Expired June Dated Plates

I have an old expired (but valid) set of June license plates from a junked car.

My daily driver is out for the count until I get parts but due to our states fee structure I do not want to transfer plates off it (hybrid) to my backup car in the garage (not hybrid) for a one month or less jaunt.

Any ideas what would happen if I transfer an expired June plate to a car in May?
Would I have to pay for 2 full years for 12.5 months?

I havenít been able to get ahold of the dmv (busy signal for days)
but I do know they banned prorated plates.

If they would allow me to transfer the plate but not renew it until June I should be golden, I would get a full year of use and could use the car whenever I want or need to

Let me know if anyone has been down this path.

Thanx
Ryan.

The way the fee schedule is setup they pretty much want to force you to buy a new plate every time (new plates are only valid 11 months) or force you to keep the same single plate forever. Rather stupid they got rid of prorated plates all so they can collect an extra $15+ but due to pandemic I would have to drive with a photocopied LAF for 3 months if I go new.

Even 3 years ago none of this would be an issue

I would probably just transfer your plates off your daily hybrid. They aren't going to charge you more for moving it to a normal gasser. I'm sure they'll just pocket the change. Seems like a lot less hassle.

Once I get the hybrid fixed I would move the plates back resulting in a $75 fee.

I rather pay $85 once and have plates on both cars in case something weird happens again, or if I need a 5 position car it is ready to use.
