I am thinking about purchasing an '02 WRX Wagon with 80k for about $8500 or so. I checked through the maintenance receipts and everything seems in good shape. I know the owner and he definitely did not beat on it.
The only issue is that it desperately needs new tires. I'm at a loss for what to purchase. I am not super well versed the realm of tires and rims.
He has the original the 205/16 stock rims on there. I am wondering whether if its worth it to invest in new rims so I can go do 215/17 or if I should stick with what its got and just get new tires.
Money is definitely something I am trying to conserve in this situation, so I am looking for a little expert advice.
Any feedback would be great. Suggestions on tire/rim combos, pros/cons whatever.
