You can buy them separately if you want. Usually when you buy a wheel and tire package you get a bit of a deal. What wheels are you looking at getting?

Wells issue is my rim size currently is 16's but I recently bought new tires and if I'm gonna get new rims that means I'm gonna have to buy new tires. There's none for that size. And I was determining between matte black fr500 or solid black fr500

You can always resell them on craigslist and try to recoup some of your money from them, you get what you paid for them new but at least you can get something.

It's a good way to save some money as of you're buying off AM then you can use the discount code and save a bit more.

Depends on the rim setup you're getting. I'm running 255/40R17s on the front and 315/35R17s on the rear and I DD my car. I know AMs kits come with either Summitomos or Nitto 555s depending on the one you pick. I ended up buying my rims and tires separate so that I could get the tires I wanted.

I don't want it to be ridiculous you know lol. Just want it to be a perfect size. And what's the different between two tires if you don't mind me asking?

Yeah I understand. It's really just up to you on how you want the car to look. The Summitomos are a cheap summer tire, just about the cheapest you can get in the bigger sizes. The Nitto's are much better but also more expensive, however they have much better traction than the Summitomos.

I'll prob go with 18's with nittos. Jersey gets some wild weather so summitomos won't help me in my cause of need for fall and winter.

I think so. You could always try PM'ing one of the AM guys and see what they could do. I don't know if they can do anything to help but it's worth a shot.
