So I'm thinking of selling the wheels which are in good condition on eBay to try to get the most cash out of them ($250-270/wheel), and then selling the tires which probably have 50% treadlife here on the forum for idk, $300 for all 4, hopefully putting me at about $1300-1400 in the pocket. Then I'd end up going with some 19" VMR V701's and Michelin PSS all around coming in at around $2300 including tax, meaning my net expense would be about $900-950, which fits in my budget. Any thoughts on getting the most money as possible out of the OEM's without ripping somebody off?
Here is something to consider... 19" VMR wheels are junk compared to 162s. I mean total garbage. In addition, they will bent before you know it and 19 tires are more expensive than 18".
Here is what I would do: Keep 162s and get PSS tires. They will look better, built to last by BBS and PSS tires are awesome. Then get AA tune and enjoy!
If you are going to spend money don't spend it on junk. Just my 2c ...
