Default soooo happy

I got my rims in the mail the other day and I just picked the tires today too. A friend in auto tech school is taking suspension class so he'* going to mount/balance the tires and give me an alignment for free. I won't be able to get pics till Thursday probably but I'm just excited.
The rims are these:

The tires are continental conti-touring. <- My mom has had them on her car for a while and they seem to be holding up good.
I'm EVENTUALLY going to paint my car burgandy/redish and I want to have gunmetal accents to go with the wheels.

Yeah, I read those three reviews and a lot of the others. At the moment, I'm not really looking for anything amazing. Just something basic that will last till next year. A lot of the people said it'* a great tire for the price and some were able to get 40k out of them.
Plus my mom has had them on her x-type for a while and seem pretty good to her/me. I was also talking to a friend that had them on his I30 for a while and he had no complaints. That first hand and close second hand experience that I have had with these tires makes me pretty comfortable.

No doubt my next set will have weight and performance in mind. (when I have some more $)

I know some places make Z06 clones for FWD, they look a lil funny without the offest, but they're still pretty sweet.
