Guys,

I have a lady at work that has an 93 maxima. She has F'ed up wheels and wants mine. My questions are:

1) What are the best places to get wheels onilne. I'm not talking pepboys!

i know of www.tires.com and www.tirerack.com I dont have any car mags here w/ me at work, so i'm hoping you guys could provide some input.

2) I want 18" Wheels, LIGHT in weight. how much is *too much* for wheels.

3) how much should I charge her for my wheels. I've got a litttle over 3K on them.

Thanks in advance.

1. try www.discounttiredirect.com, they have free shipping. and more selections than tirerack, also look into www.wheelmax.com. they have a huge selection.

2. are you just looking for wheels or wheels and tires?? too much for just wheels would depend on how much you are willing to spend. some people spend $2000+just on wheels, and sometimes $3500+ on wheels and tires. i personally am looking to spend nomore than $2000 for both rims and tires....we will see how that goes.

3. i was gonna sell my rims and tires for $500 which i think is a good deal. so if its a co-worker $500 is good. especially with only 3k on them.

you are welcome

Hehehe... personal sale. ;)
ok, i think we lost each other...or at least im lost. let me start over, our rims are on ebay for like $600, i dont think its with tires, so i think you should ask for $800-$1000 depending on how fine the chic is.

fair to me, but think you should milk it for all you can get....(no pun intended) hehehe. dont milk her physically. start at $1000, if she goes with it good, but dont go under $800

Now don't laugh....I got my wheels from Sears for my Mr2. I took the tire rack add to them and they ordered them and and so on..and matched the price.

Good for me, because any problems....I ride up the stret to sears and they fix it.

Sears orders from Tire Rack.....Yes it was news to me..Good thing too....Tire rack sent sears my wheels with 4 lug bolt pattern on 2 rims and the car is 5....so they had to deal with the returns and the BS

FYI - the locking lugs that came with my wheels from Discount are a full set of 20 Gorillas (Not 1 per wheel). NICE! The ones that came from Wheelmax with my friends wheels are JUNK! If you order locking lugs with your wheels make sure they are good ones.

I quoted the lady 700. I Didnt want to *rob* her. She's sweet. I figure 300+ more or so for my new wheels isnt too bad.
