I don't want to subject them to the salt on our roads, so I put on my 14" american racing wheels with snow tires for the winter.

I like my 15x7 K1s, wish I'd known about the 15x8s though.

I love my K1's - I've had them on the car for at least six or seven years and more than 100K miles. They've survived the allegedly paved roads of the NYC metro area nicely.

They should give you an estimate.

Just a guess, but they're probably fast. After all, who wants their race tires/new parts quickly? Everyone .

Nah, they're busy shipping wheels!

The shipping will determine the time anyway. Tirerack just loads em up, and sends them off, probably the same day.

You have money left over for your car and you live 10 min from the worlds most glorious den of evil, impressive. You must have some serious self control.

I still need to get some rubbber, even though i still haven't got the wheels yet..
it's gonna be either 205-50-15 or 205-45-15 toyo t1r. only the 45 is about $100 more expensive per set then the 50, but i find the 50 sidewall fugly...
other opinions?

I've got 225 hoosiers (even bigger than most street 225) on a 6" rim. But that's silly I suppose. You set on the toyo? what about azenis or rs2?
