The wheels on your car right now are used lol. As long as those ones aren't cracked or warped somehow, Id go for it. $550 is a relatively good deal on deep dish wheels. Especially if they come with tires lol

Looks like a good deal as long as the tires are in decent shape. The rash isn't that bad on the one either really. I would get them. Offer 500 ,meet in the middle and be done with it.

1 hour isn't much by my standards lol. But I drive 850+ miles a week. No exaggeration. School is 1 hour away, I go there every day. GF's house is 2 hours away and Im there 3-4 days a week lol

Paid 300 for mine, but not deep dish, imo the deeps look way better. 550 is a pretty good deal if tires still have tread. I'm sure you'll be happy with the looks once installed. Soccerlover has deep bullits and his ride looks so much bigger/beefier than mine. I'd grab em

An hour is nothing. I would never limit my radius to buying used parts to any less than an hour drive in any direction

I always carry, at minimum, a switch blade when I do CL deals. Usually something that goes bang is more helpful.

Pretty much any time your carrying large amounts of cash around strangers, you should be careful/ready with a plan B

Dude prob just doesn't want to load them up and drive half way and you don't show.

But if you are worried about being assaulted you can usually meet at a police station to do the deal. Lots of police departments are encouraging this. But I personally just meet people in large retail parking lots in broad daylight. Never had a problem.

I wouldn't meet a police station id probably get a parking ticket and then they'd make me pay to register the wheels or something. Better off getting mugged lol

I just hope that if anybody is about to become the victim of an attempted mugging, that its me. Cuz Im more likely to end the mugger's career.

I kinda sorta needed my gun about 2 weeks ago and im glad I had it with. Car got broken into and I had to do a recovery mission for my $1600 worth of laptop and books lol

They came off an 05 gt will that make a difference?

I read somewhere about different offset.

Anyone with any experience on this I don't want to drive an hour just to find out they won't fit
