    OK you've convinced me, I didn't think it would cost you that much for those tires, what size?

    So do you have any better idea what you're looking for yet?

    Convinced you of what? There Sumitomo HTRZ 275/40-17 front and 315/35-17 rear. Trust me, that is a VERY reasonable price for tires. The fronts were $64.50 a piece and the rear where $110 a piece. Thats the absolute cheapest price on a 315/35-17 anywhere. ANY other 315s will cost more than the Sumitomos (about double; I think the next cheapest is the Vredesteins and there like $200 a piece). The staggered rims (9 inch front and 10.5 rear) were only $10 more than the 9's all the way around, but if you went with 9 inch rims all around it would only be $258 for 4 tires as apposed to $349, and $579 for rims instead of $589. Make sense?

    Convinced me that it was a good deal that's what, I didn't think it was possible to get TT2's for less than $600, and on that note I'd like to look into the matter right away. Where did you get those rims from?

    I'm not sure its even possible to get TT2's for less than $600. I bought TTM's, which are only slightly different to be honest. Keep in mind, chrome (TTM's come in chrome and TT2's come in polished) TTM's and polished TT2's will probably cost more than the Anthacite TTM's with the polished lip, which is what I got. I think I'd probably go with Anthacite or black on a red car like yours though. If I remember right, black was the same price, maybe a little less. I got it all from TomzWheels.

    No way your gonna find TTII's for less than $600 especially if you want the 315's in the back for that wide stance look. Search any threads or ebay, maybe someone's tryin to get rid of a set and you get lucky. I personally prefer the look of the TTII's compared to the TTM's. I choose to get mine power coated black too. Well worth the time and extra money to get the right look though.

    I thought you said you got TT2's, that's why I found it hard to believe at first and that's why I kept asking questions, this changes things.

    I think the black TTMs would look killer on your car.

    Yeah but I have white stripes and a white top, if I had a black top and black stripes I'd definitely go with a set. I'm kinda worried there will be too many different colors clashing. Either way, I don't really have the money for rims right now, just saying that was a good deal with the TTM's.
