    Hey all. My mechanic calls me today and tells me he found "the deal of the century". He told me that he found SIX Si rims that are in VERY good condition. Four of them come with tires that are in good condition and two of them come with new tires. The price for them is $375. Now them, here are the pro's and con's of this.

    The pro's are:

    The Wilwood brakes which I hope to get my hands on have already been notched for 15's, so fitment will not be a problem.

    They are very clean rims as you all know, so they will provide a nice, clean look.

    The price seems right, since they do come with tires.

    They'll allow me to get my current rims, which are Rota N1r's, to get worked on so that they actually look decent and come back to life. :D

    I would have six rims, so God help me I should curb check the hell out of one, I'd have spares. :ph34r:

    Now for the con's:

    They are not performance parts in a sense.

    The money spent for them could be spent on parts needed for my build, such as the Wilwood brake set up.

    There you have it all. Feel free to discuss, flame, throw things at me...like your words of wisdom and sarcastic remarks. ^_^

    Gracias

    Do you want them, Mike? Heck, if you were to move here, I could see a trade happening. :ph34r::ph34r:

    I bought a set for $250 last summer, and that was sans tires, so I'd say that's a pretty good deal... :shrug:

    It's pretty cheap to ship wheels without tires...

    I just think the 99-00 Si wheels look better on an EF than the 94-95 GSRs do.

    Depending on what my mechanic's plans are with the rims, we may be able to work something out. I think he is wanting to buy the rims, put them on my car and then just have me pay him back later on. I'm not really sure. I'll let you know once I figure things out.

    Um, right. Pretty sure this thread is about whether or not he should buy the wheels that someone's offering to sell him. He's not offering anything for sale himself.

    Go check out the "For Sale" section near the bottom of the forum...
