    Well now I have a bit of bad news. I bent one of my rims pretty good. It wont hold air for more then an our now. Because of all the snow we have gotten lately, the roads are terrible. Even the highways.

    Should I get a new one or look to getting it fixed?

    People get rid of stock wheels all the time. I'd look to see if any are available, and if so I might even pick up two, allowing me to have a full size spare (this will not fit in the stock location while allowing the carpet to sit flush, but it's IMO worth thinking about).

    Has any one ever had that platinum colored tint on their windows? Is it pretty dark on the inside? It would really go with my rims I think.
    Sorry you wasted your money on a book. And that tint wont pass inspection most likely...

    Either way will work. I would price both out and see what you want to do.

    I diddn't buy the book, the dealer bought it for me. The platinum is definitely legal..... back home in Texas any ways. I'm up in the north east out now so I donno about up here.

    I did both actually...... I looked every where for some one in my area that fixes bent rims with no luck. So I ordered one off the intra web for $170 with shipping.

    The very next day I was shopping for some summer rims and found a guy that fixes rims. So I have my old rim on again (which seems to be riding surprisingly smooth), and a new one on the way. So yeah, I have a spare rim now!

    On another note, every sooby deserves a good day of fun and exploration. Besides, I had to celebrate getting that ugly donut off my car lol.
