Help! New rims, new car, no tires! PICS

Just picked up some Foose 18x8.5 nitrous rims for 700 bucks. Not a scratch on them. Is that a good deal? Also I'm contemplating 255/45/18 tires from what I've been reading.

Should I go with different tires? Lowering springs? Or sell them and keep looking.? Thanks!

That's a great deal, if your tires on there now fit go ahead and swap them, you can always get new tires later.

A 255/45/18 would be a good size for that rim.

You might be able to make $100 if you sell them but when you start getting within $100-$200 of new people generally want the warranty/ability to return.

The stock rims are 17's so I'm forced to buy new tires regardless. Should I buy locally or search online? I live in Canada by the way.

You can order tires and have them sent to a shop near you.

Oftentimes local shops will match tirerack once you factor in shipping/taxes or get really close. I'd call around and see what prices you can get. If not, Tirerack is one of your best bets.

A set of four 255/45/18s on Tirerack are $600 USD plus probably $50 USD shipping. Around here its $100 for a mount and balance on 4 tires. So $750 USD. Not sure what that works out in fake Canadian money plus you guys have tax out the *** etc...
