On or off your car. Really interested in getting them as a 2nd set of 18s. My chromies and these silver wheels.
JeremyG said:Here they are... man they look SO HUGE:
FYI, they are the 18x9's, with new 245/40/18 Kumho Ecsta Supra 712's attached.
Total cost with shipping:
Wheels and install kit (lug nuts/retainer rings) $466 (ordered on a Monday, got them on a Friday)...
Grand Total: $1023... remember that's BRAND NEW wheels AND tires!
A neat note is that this does come with METAL valve stems... with metal caps. A nice touch.
A night shot, just for the heck of it. Camera doesn't do them justice, in low light they look EXCELLENT.
Shit my Anteras are heavy as hell, I don't care. The Tubolares were originally around $375 each, not exactly junkers. That style has been around for years, but it's a good thing nobody has them. They're nice, I want to switch them out every once in a while just to make my car look different from time to time. Like taking my nose mask off every once in a while for a different look.JeremyG said:Yeah I have pics, uploading them right now...
Look, for $89 each, you just gotta buy them. Heck, as a "junker" set at the worst case.
Although I took them around to all my friends/family today and everyone really liked them.
turns out, wheels and tires combined, they are each 8 pounds heavier than my stock wheels, but my stock wheels were totally bald so you gotta figure there is 1 pound of extra rubber on the new tires.
Yep, $30 adds up to $120 instantly. Yeah, I had 265/35 on my 18x9 wheels I had previously. After some thought, I took a chance and put the same size tires on my 18.8.5 wheels that I currently have. They look exactly the same as they did on the niners. So, I'm sticking with that size cause they look perfect, a little over flush, but at least my rim isn't exposed.JeremyG said:Yeah I was going to go 265 width also but they were $30 per tire more and my wife nixed that. LOL
I dont have any closer pics but will take some on Monday.
So are you getting the Tubolares? If she gave you a limit of say, $2000, I'd get something else. But these are decent wheels at a VERY decent price. Take them while you can.sprung_monkey said:hey grimm geuss what im getting for christmas god i love my mom she asked me what i wanted i said only some rims thats all i want! hehehehehe now i get to pay for evreything else oh what fun
