how much did you score them for?

I saw a set of those on an SLC at the junk yard.. lady at the desk wanted to sell the whole care for 2k.. told her 300$ for the wheels since they need to be refinished(more like polished to remove the tarnish)

she said no...

$200. They are not in hand yet but I should have them by Wed. What do you guys think of color matching to my car when I get it painted?

Undetermined at this point. They are too wide for decent fuel economy on the wagon. The ones that I have on there now came in a set of 5, I have a NIB one. I will probably sell that separate on Ebay.

I got the rims today. It was raining. The rims I have on there now I bought when it was raining. Good Luck? Pretty odd for a state that is in the worst draught in 50yrs.

... how does wide tires affect fuel economy?

before you list them on ebay, post them for sale here, or just send me a PM, I like them.

fuel econ is the pits. 17 on a good day. I think this has to do with the fact that the rear is toed in so far, hope to fix that this weekend. I should add that my econ has always been in this range or worse on stock rims and new ones.

I am going to sell the 5th rim on ebay no matter what, it NIB and doesnt even come close to matching in look compared to the used ones.
