Default What about these wheels?

I don't intend these for serious driving, obviously, but for a night on the town, etc.. What do you think?

I kinda figured that when I looked at the car he had them on! Except we don't have those (pep boys) here, so maybe I'm ok. What would be a good price, considering I would have to drive 230 miles round trip?

I wish I could find something local so I wouldn't have to pay $100 for shipping. Either that or help my wife find a job. Not a lot of openings for italian literature majors here in rural michigan at this time, or ever in fact.

Shipping from places like Edge is really reasonable.

MR7's and their clones are EVERYWHERE. It's practically one of the most common wheels out there.

.........and i don't care much for them, honestly.

Thanks for the input. I really had no idea. Other than the cars that come through Cody's shop, there just isn't a car culture up here. Really nothing to compare them to. I quess I liked them because I don't know of any cars that have them, believe it or not.

I'll give you $51 each!? I wish I could find a deal like that on a set that I really like. Its hard to justify because my stock girlies have pilots on them that I love. And I am broke.

just paint your stock wheels gunmetal gray if you like the tires that are on em..... worst case scenario you spend 30 bucks on paint and sandpaper...... have tires you like, and more time to save for a nicer set of rims!
