Ebay always has good deals if you know where to look. Two years ago I found two of these chrome 5 spokes listed seperately as "Pontiac Rim" with a picture. Opening bid was $10 with a shipping price of $20. I bid on both and was the only bidder. Two rims for a total of $60. Both are in excellent cond, no scratches or marks at all. Too bad our cars need 4 rims or I would be all set. Actually I also have the Swoopies and love 'em. Just saving them for the next Bonnie.

Surely none of you are surprised He seems to pull these deals out of nowhere. I'm thinking the next time I want something, I'll just give him a finders fee. I'd still probably come out WAY ahead

Pretty fast shipping if you ask me. This is what greeted me when I got home today.

Sorry guys, I simply do not like the swoopies.

aren't you going to swap tires?
I thought you just bought "new" tires

First step, remove outside wheel weights and get rebalanced.

at dealership as I type

Not going to swap tires since these are not as bad as I thought they would be. My "new" free ones arent much better. They will only last a few months anyways
