Default Yay, I'm getting new rims!

As the title has said, I'm getting new rims Thursday. I went today to Discount Tires and they had a special on a 125.00 dollar rim (set of four of course) that was marked down to 75 bucks due to excessive supplies and no demand. I got them in 16" because the weather changes too much and I don't wanna continously change rims.
The nice asst. manager offered to pull some rims out so I could hold it up against my car. So nice, I wanted to give him a tip until my mom smacked me in the head and said, "This is not the place to do that."

A pic of the rim I'm getting.

Now I can't wait! And btw, all together is 400 bucks, that includes new lugnuts and lugnuts covers and labor.

SWEET!

Actually DJ, Big Bertha is silver. I think it'* in my sig. Speaking of which, I think after I get them installed, I'll ask a friend with a digital camera to photograph my car so y'all can see it and provide positive constructive critisim.

Pat, I know you love bigger rims but I seriously considered it but I'll be doing a lot of highway driving and live in harsh weather that I decided 17'* wasn't worth the hassle. And beside after I finish college, I'll treat myself to bigger rims. The new rims that i purchased is my early HS graduation gift.
