If you don't care for them that much, I wouldn't waste the $ that's just delaying the satisfactory of purchasing the wheels you really want.

lol yeah was stupid to consider!... My rim was destroyed and was just looking for a quick way to be back on the road... Decided to wait until pay day and pick up a set of saleen's .. it will hurt to spend the money but will be worth it.

Not stupid just like me and most car lovers on here, I DON'T have an endless supply of money so you think of anything to just get the car back on the road, try a salvage yard just to get by for now! Or break down and buy what you really want, I'm sure it will look BA

If you want wheels to get you back on the road, hit up the corral or CL for whatever stock rims you can find and have your tires put on. You can usually get a set of OEM basic GT rims for $200-$300 for the set. You can sell them for the same.

235 on a 9" wide rim is going to look like ***. Ask me how I know. 265 is more correct for a 9" wide rim.

Edit: Pics of a 235 on a 9" rim.



I hated it so much I got new rims lol.

Yeah see the edit I posted. I mean they'll work but you'll be "hella flush". I went to a 18x8 up front with the 235 and it couldn't fit better.

I mean do whatever makes you happy. If you are ok with your current wheels maybe wait. Just be damn sure to order the right size tires unlike me. I just got VERY lucky I was able to sell my $585 new rims for $500 locally and not have to eat very much $$$ to get it right.

LOL well I WAS happy with my current wheels heh..
Until the mechanic who did my safety inspection didn't torque my lug nuts down on the rear left rim!.. now my rim is destroyed.. the holes where the studs go are all chewed up and I don't feel safe driving it like that lol.

Took almost 2 weeks for me to notice, not sure why it took so long for them to back off but glad I found it before it did some serious damage. So.. cant really wait any longer.. Good thing I can use the tow truck for personal lol but I don't really like doing that..

I've found out the hard way to bust out the torque wrench after a shop pulls the wheels off for whatever reason. The air gun can be pretty hit or miss with torquing them properly.

I also found out the hard way, that's the second time this year a incompetent person has worked on my car!
This winter got an oil change at a quick lube..
Drove out of the shop and one of the workers comes running out telling me to shut the car off!.. Plug fell out!.. Uggh from now on no one does work on my car other then me!..
