Thanks

I have a BCP scion...

Its been hard to find rims... because to me.. BCP isn't a wheel friendly color...

So I always keep my eyes open on ebay... and I couldn't pass this one up...

Quick question... I know when I bought my tC .. you get tires for life if you keep up with your car check ups.... what exactly happens when you buy aftermarket tires and rims?? Do you still receive free tires? or do I no longer get this because I changed wheels??

THanks

Why would you always get check ups at the dealer? Its like throwing away money. i do not believe you will continue to get free tires if you change, but i think that is a question for your dealer, not us

chrome rims look ridiculous on anything except gangsta cars (buicks, chryslers, etc) or trucks. i would hate to see chrome rims on a TC.

Chrome look good though, not everyone wants a "race themed car", chrome wheels will provide a very elegant look to most cars, i think they look fine, I look forward to seeing them on the car, post pics soon!

if the car is more for show purposes than racing/performance, i have no problem with chrome (especially on a dark colored car)

yeah. i wouldn't normally say this but, i think those rims might look really nice on a tC in BCP. if you like them I wouldn't laugh at you for putting them on. I would high five ya.

Well... I feel much better about the purchase... now that I have the support of putting chrome shoes on my car


I should be getting my wheels tomorrow... then I still need to purchase tires for them...

What are the cheapest... but not horrible tire... that I can purchase??

I looked on ebay... I see some tires by Nankang... and also some Essenzas I think they are called..

What do you think??

tirerack.com has ratings on quite a few tires for handling in the wet,dry,snow,etc. there's probably a better price elsewhere,but you could get some ratings at least
