Default Help Getting Support for Rims From Family

Ok...here is where i am calling the BC club to help me get support to present to my parents about helping me get the rims i want in the F/* section. Rim Pics Here

Here is the question:

Do you think it would make my car look alot better, and are the rims worth it for 120 dollars with tires + shipping?

Please post your thoughts, and vote in the poll.

Thanks,
Andrew

That URL just sends me to the BC index. I know it isn't the link to the index.. but yeah.

With my mom, car support will NEVER happen. Especially financial support. This could be because I got the car for free [from my mom], that we can barely afford food as it is [mmm food], or that she would kind of prefer me not having a car. But, I still haven't seen the rims. Chances are it will be slim chance [I don't know your parents, so it could go either way]. Especially since rims aren't required to keep the car running [you do have rims now, right?] .

Those silver cross laces would look really good. It looks like you and Andy (zzzeke) have nearly the same colour car so at least you have a good idea of what it is gonna look like.

I say go for it. If you dont like what you have now, anything is an improvement

I have said on IM and on here, that you shuold do it......that is a REEEEaly good price for Crosslace Alloys. there is a huge ride difference and a handeling difference (for the better) going from the 15 to the 16, they have almost no effect on your speedo, and your pedded may not be 100% accurate to begin with. And yes Andys car is the Exact same color and trim as yours

GET thoes wheels, that is a unbelieveble price

Yeah, those are nice wheels, and for the price they are damn good for any wheels. But, what I am more concerned about here, is funding from his parents. You have a doughnut, or a full-sized spare? Hit me up on AIM, and i'll give you an idea. Some members may not like what I have to say, so i'll keep it offline.

Oh, and yeah, you do have some nasty wheels, no offense. But hey, we have old cars.. there will be flaws. Just look at my paint.
