Pointless. The tires mounted are not worth the hassle of shipping. I'd recommend seeing how much money you can budget for wheels and tires, then increasing that budget by a little bit -- stretch the budget a bit -- and buy ONLY tires with your existing rims.

Being a tire snob is the one snobbery I applaud. Spend a bit more than you think you could possibly spend on tires at all times. I've lived by the rule and perhaps because of the rule.

Whether they're lighter or not, if you absolutely must have them, buy better tires. Looks are irrelevant compared to safety.

I started to work an extra five hours extra per billing period:screwy:... What i really want is this indash nav system. I have a garmin (c230) that has a suction cup to attached to the wind shield. But it gets in the way when i'm trying to drive so... Thinking i might sell it and use the $$ for the in dash nav system. It's gonna take a while thought... I'm only making 50 dollars extra per billing period.

Eclipse AVN5500
-the best i can find it on e-bay is like 690ish.

I agree, love my pirellis. Got them for less than $600 shipped from tirerack.

As for the wheels, i'd say keep your eyes peeled for a used set of forged wheels, or even go with rotas. I rock the rotas, and i don't worry too much about the curbage cause they're old, and they came with the car.
