This a Good Deal/Idea

Wheel Details - Discount Tire Direct
http://www.discounttiredirect.com/pr...d40.gbl.xl.jpg

there going to be like 420 bucks... then ill have to buy some tires some day

I wont be getting the tmps rebuild kit.. or the lugs.. i can get the lugs and rebuild kit cheaper in town, I know it for sure.

Ive been looking for wheels for about a month now and this is what ive took it down too.. id be better off paying for these then buying used stock 16 in cobalt wheels and having them shipped here for the same price!

I love the look and the nice polished lip! and there 17's, so ill get some nice SSC springs and ill be ready to go (:

Its up to you bud. I found out with cheaper painted wheels they will start to flake away. Wish i would have just saved for a nice set the first time. That said my taste in wheels has changed a bit too. So i been wanting another set anyway. Its certainly not a bad price. But those are just some things i would think about.
