welby Posted December 16, 2008 Share Posted December 16, 2008 I'm gonna be due for new tires in the next few months and was checking out TireRack.com. I see they have these 18x8" Sport Edition CD wheels on closeout for $79 a piece, which IMO is dirt cheap. They actually dropped the price $20 each from about a month ago. I can get the wheels and a set of mounted and balanced tires (225/40R18 XL Kumho Ecsta AST) for $667.08 shipped. That includes new lugs and everything. Now, locally, tires in 215/45/17 are typically running about $100 each. After taxes, mounting, tire disposal fees other little misc fees they add on, I'm looking at around $489 just for new tires for the stock wheels. If I go the Tirerack route, I'd basically be getting 4 new wheels for a whopping $44.52 a piece. Seems like kind of a no-brainer, I'm just undecided on whether I really like the style of wheel and how they'd look on a stock suspended car. What do you guys think?? http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/1781/sewheelsuf2.jpg http://www.tirerack.com/images/wheels/sportedition/swap/se_cd_bs_ci3_l.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
