Maybe I'm completely off my rocker, but I don't think they look terrible. Yeah, they're a little out of proportion, but I wouldn't have looked at that picture and immediately thought they looked stupid. I say if you've already got 'em and don't have the coin for a different set, run 'em. The cheapest set of tires is the set you already own.

at least you have some sidewall...its not like those ricer rubber band ones where the tread is right outside of the rim

gl finding something else soon

and well this way you can solve the speeding problem and the bald tires you had before...so basicaly you saved yourself from at least 2 tickets, just pretend you dont know the speedo is wrong that way you wont try to go 10 over cuz you know its 10 off.........

Default small rims

i know how you feel, i put those 15'* on mine for a while but i couldn't take looking at them anymore. Lucky for me i still had the original rims and just put them back on. you will feel better when you get the right tires back on there.
