went shoppin on the Ebay...

Wheels were priv. indv. $420 after shipping... :D
Tires Ebay too, but www.whalentire.com $330.
The above prices included shipping. I mounted 'em. Paid a local shop $25 to balance 'em.

All in all, I really like 'em... will like 'em even more when the car drops around them a little...:D

oh, and thanks btw....:D

Those are the exact rims I have been looking for, that style is perfect for our cars, PERFECT. Thats an excellent price too! i was looking at some Z racing wheels from sears that look just like that but I am not sure if they come in 17s or not. Dont laugh at sears rims, I know some of you are right now! They are a lot cheaper then most rims and look really good, so shaadup!:)

I planned on having it lowered before now... just not the way it works out. My wife keeps chewing my a$$ over tripping on Intrax and Tokicos in the dining room...
I tell her "but honey, I have them stacked up next to my rolling tool box"....:D

Swweett!

Those are stylin rims man, now I know what my car would look like with 17's. Can't wait to see picks when it's lowered. I'm doing mine opposite...I'm getting mine lowered in about three weeks...then eventually rims and tires.

MY <notice capitalization for weighted effect?
car, is mine. To do with as "I" <quotes add weighted effect also.
wish, not to impress you.

:mad:

YOU <see above note.
come on this board to criticize other peoples rides? Man, you really $uck. Yes, YOU <[email protected] capitals again
not your CAR, YOU $uck.
MY car does not reflect on YOU, or YOUR car in ANY way.

:mad:

So take your negitivity and shove it up your @$$, where it's
sure to keep your head company.:p

LOL Bukowski!!! Tell this a$$ clown how it works around here!!! Ayeka, You come on here with 10 posts so obvioulsy you are new to the board, and you are already pissing people off?! Is it your goal to offend people. If you think a set of very tasteful rims is "ricey" or "beanafied" You are sadly mistaken. Grow up and learn some manners you little putz.

Glad to see you roll with the punches bukowski:)

Yeah, I try to take it pretty easy, except when people are rude it pi$$es me off.
I would have said the same thing if the post was on someone elses car.
I'm a disabled USN Veteran, and I put up with $hit EVERY day.
This guys comment is a thorn.

hey Ayeka, wheres the pics of your moms legend? How much work have YOU done to it?

(no offense intended towards the younger Legend Generation who actually care ie: LilboiTony)

Thanks BTW CH...
