Hye guys (and gals).
My better half has finaly agreed not to veto change of tires and rims(hey, I get to veto stuff too, or at least I think I do
). So far I bought about 3 sets of tires from tirerack.com, they have been nothing but great. BUT, they don't have good selection of rims. I want darker and lighter rims for my silver blue GEN4. 16" stuff is OK priced, but the moment I look at 17" the price on tires almost doubles, I am not even talking about 18"s.

I looked at tires.com, but those guys seems to be even more expensive.
Anyone here had good experience with any other stores?

I've also pretty much gotten everything at tirerack. For tire prices, I think they basically can't be beat, haven't really found anyplace that was cheaper once shipping was also factored in. Also if you're just going from steel wheels to rims, why not just get the factory rims? There always seems to be a set or two for sale on ebay, much cheaper than getting a fancy set of wheels, especially if you're only going to be keeping the car for two years.

Years ago I bought a car from a guy that had BBS rims and he wanted an extra $1000 for them. I told him to keep them, then he dropped the price to $200 and it was easier taking them than putting the old rims and swapping tires, but basically the point is that custom rims are custom to you, the odds of finding someone who will pay extra for them when you go to sell it are not good.
