Default will two sets of wheels and tires put too much weight?

I am going to pick up two sets of wheels and tires from about 150 miles away I have a 1996 ssei and was wondering if that much weight would be too much for the car? figured 4 in the trunk and the rest in the back seat? I thought it would be ok and I dont wanna drive the girls exploder any feedback is greatlt appreciated.. Oh and I am doing this tomorrow morning. the deal was way to good to pass up and I havent taken my bonnie on a trip yet..

It'll be fine. Kinda like two passengers. You won't be able to get 4 in the trunk, though.

Definitely not to much weight. You will be just fine for any drive with that weight. Only problem is if they all have tires on them, I don't know if you will fit four of them in the trunk.

I had my '93 LOADED.... trunk and back seat full of camping gear, clothes, coolers etc. Enough stuff for a week of fun. Drove from Michigan to Connecticut (sp?) no proplem.

Nice thing about the ELC in our cars

remove your back seat(at home). more room for the wheels if you think you will need it

The Warden doesn't know how much wheels weigh.

2 or 3 in the trunk, 4 in the back seat (blanket or bags), a couple more in the front passenger seat, no problem.

That'* nothing.

I picked up a 455 Pontiac block with the crank and heads loose and stuffed it in the trunk of my 99 SE. It was damn near riding on the axle for the 70 mile ride home, but you do what you gotta do.

With the rear seat removed, you can fit 3 wheels behind each front seat. Easy. Then it'* just an easy two in the trunk.

Definitely not too much weight either.
